GEOPHYSICAL PROJECT EVALUATION TO THE UN SDGS – GWB PROJECT IN SERBIA AND BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA
28th European Meeting of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics, Held at the Near Surface Geoscience Conference and Exhibition 2022, NSG 2022
Three decades ago, Unated Nations initiated new approach linking social, economic and environmental issues – sustainable development. It was initially defined through eight Millenium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015 and, thereafter, through 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030. Within numerous initiatives to contribute to SDGs from various points of science, geophysicists gave their contribution by establishing committees in the most eminent professional associations (EAGE, SEG, SPE, etc.). The most important result is the Geophysical Sustainability Atlas, where application of geophysical methods in solving different problems, particularly within humanitarian expert projects is illustrated. Goal of the paper is to show significance of project evaluation in terms of UN SDGs on specific example – GwB expert humanitarian project of landslides investigation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. Implementation of the project is evaluated on the basis of six evaluation items proposed by OECD-DAC: relevance, effectiveness, impact, coherence, efficiency and sustainability, but also how they contributed to the SDGs. This paper is the first example of project assessment of a GwB project.
