The goal of the MEG project, implemented by UNDP in BiH, is to improve the municipal development management system, and provide services from the ecological and economic sectors. Improvements will result in better services for citizens at the local level, and greater responsibility and building of trust between local authorities, citizens and the economy.

In the previous period, the Municipality of Prnjavor has developed mechanisms and capacities for improving environmental and economic governance, through the adoption of new decisions, plans, regulations, procedures, contracts. An independent estimator, engaged by UNDP, made an assessment in accordance with the Methodology for Granting Financial Support, and decided that the Municipality of Prnjavor had progressed by 75%, comparing to the initial values from 2016 and thus won the maximum grant.

The stated amount of BAM 225,000 will be spent on the infrastructure project for the reconstruction of Vida Nježića Street. Based on the assessment, the total value of the project, which involves the replacement of sewage and water pipes, the construction of sidewalks, asphalting and lighting in the mentioned street, is about BAM 1,000,000, and the rest of the money will be separated from the municipal budget. The reconstruction of Vida Nježića Street should be completed by the end of 2018.


The participants of the 12th Belgrade Banjaluka Bicycle Race passed through Prnjavor, where a number of citizens met them, and they continued towards Banja Luka.

A spokesman Dušan Repija said that in organizing such a sport event, cooperation with local communities is of great importance.

“Bringing 170 bikers from around the world is very difficult, it takes a lot of money, and every help from local communities is welcome. Without local communities the organization of the event would not be possible”, said Repija.

The Mayor of the Municipality of Prnjavor, Darko Tomaš, said that it was a great honor for the Municipality to be a part of a great sports event, such as the Bicycle Race Belgrade – Banja Luka.

“Our wish is Prnjavor to be one of the places from which the race stage would start. We are ready to talk with the organizers about it”, said Tomaš.

He added that such a sporting event, accompanied by a large number of media, is also an excellent opportunity for the tourism promotion of the local community.
