The area of improving the situation of women in rural areas is very important from strategic point of view for the overall development of the Republika Srpska, because other key development priorities are reflected in it: Development of environment protection and preservation of natural resources; 5.
Population development mitigation from rural areas, increase of birth rate, improvement of age and education structure of rural population ; 6. Local development and infrastructure development; 7. Development of democratic potential and increase of public awareness. Given the importance of these development goals interweaving with public policies aiming at the improved situation of women in rural areas, it was necessary to introduce holistic approach on one side and on the other side, a clear apprehension that developments and improvements in the said areas are not possible unless we consider gender equality.
Holistic approach, as a dominant one during the previous five-year period of implementation of this public policy, managed to consolidate the efforts of a large number of institutions and social stakeholders at different levels agriculture, education, health, infrastructure, economy, regional development, administration and local self-governance, finances, various non-governmental organizations and expertsand to ensure emerging of a framework for a long-term, complex, institutional and pragmatic public policy that has a distinctive importance for overall development of the Republika Srpska.
For the first time, prerequisites for radical change of the situation of women in rural areas were defined in such way and with such swing, profundity and range. In many ways, these were pioneering steps in the region.
As it was a period of first institutional approaches to the issue of women in rural areas, the previous five-year period was at the same time a period of intensive learning about the best approaches and most efficient solutions for these problems.
Lessons learned regarding desired and realistic solutions and how it is possible to speed up the changes with limited available resources, have been incorporated in this evaluation and recommendations.
In the meantime, local and international context have also changed, which only emphasizes the significance of a strategic approach to establishing gender equality in rural areas as a key element to the development of rural areas and agriculture, as well as to ensuring food safety, balanced development of population and overall economic development of the Republika Srpska.
In this sense, next period is a new challenge and a new opportunity to strengthen policies aimed at establishing gender equality in rural areas and improving situation of rural women.The Role of Nigeria Local Government In Rural Development.
