EU continues to support investment in rural tourism

The European Union’s EU4AGRI project today launched a public call for support to investments in rural tourism in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project aims to develop economic activities in rural areas, to open new jobs and retain existing ones, and to preserve natural and cultural heritage. At the same time, the support aims to respond to the recovery needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


The public call is open solely to partnerships consisting of an applicant with a minimum of three partners. The applicants can be local governments, companies or entrepreneurs that provide services or products in the tourism sector. Each partnership can apply for between BAM 20,000 and BAM 200,000, depending on the number of the partners. The partnership must secure co-financing for at least 15% of the total value of the proposed investment. The public call is published on the EU4AGRI official website.


The preliminary list of all public calls under the EU4AGRI project can be found here.

The deadline for submission of applications is 15:00 on 21 December 2020.


EU4AGRI is a four-year (2020-2024) European Union project valued at BAM 20.25 million that aims to modernise the agri-food sector in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The project is jointly implemented and co-financed by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in BiH and the Czech Development Agency (CzDA).
