Commissioned by: The City of Benkovac
Project duration: October, 2011 – June, 2012
Project manager: Nenad Starc, PhD


Brief outline:
Draft Development Programme for the City of Benkovac was prepared in two steps:
  1. Ex post evaluation of the Development Programme for the City of Benkovac and the Municipality of Lišane Ostrovičke in the period 2007-2011. 
  2. Preparation of the draft Development Programme for the City of Benkovac in the period 2012-2016 comprising a summary of the ex post evaluation of the Programme for Benkovac and Lišane Ostrovičke in the period 2007-2011, identification of development problems and goals, an action plan and three years budget proposal.The City Council adopted the draft in June 2012.
                                                                                          
The following main results of the preparation of the draft Programme were achieved:
  • competences of the city administration for effective city development management are increased by means of the Development Programme and corresponding consulting. 
Side results: 
  • city administrators are able to formulate development projects and apply at EU and other funds for financing; 
  • city administrators are familiar with methods for evaluation of implementation of local development programmes;
  • city administration successfully harmonizes programme implementation measures and city budget expenditures.

As the Development Programme for the period 2007-2011 had been prepared by EIZ, both programmes and the ex post evaluation have been summarized as a case study. The case study will be used in the Guidelines for Preparation of Development Programmes at local level which have been prepared by three out of five Institute experts that worked on this project.
