This is a study that aims to help create a better world. As big as it sounds, it is the truth. Everyday municipality officers in Bosnia and Herzegovina work for a better environment, a betterworld. Despite their efforts the work they do is not as efficient as it could be and the supportavailable for them is meagre. For this reason a programme called Municipality EnvironmentalInfrastructure is under development in cooperation between the University of Sarajevo (Bosniaand Herzegovina) and the Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden) with financing from theSwedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). This thesis is a part of the workto make the programme successful.Competence needs for municipality officers will be identified through a needs analysis based oninterviews with different stakeholders. The answers provided will create a picture of the needsthat is both univocal and diverse with competences in identifying and handling environmentalthreats as well as managing infrastructure projects.The thesis will also look at what pedagogical methods the teachers at the programme plan to useand how this affects the programme. Since the programme is held in a formal setting but intendspractical use of the knowledge this leads to high demands on the pedagogical methods. Theprogramme syllabus will be fount to not entirely encompass all competence needs butsuggestions will be made as to how to include the identified needs.
