Summary of the project

The primary objective of the project is to provide adequate housing for up to 202 Roma men, women and families who were relocated from the informal settlements in Belgrade.

However, in addition to construction of homes, the project should establish resettlement procedures and processes in line with the international human rights standards. It should also generate best practices in the domain of the right to adequate housing for Roma from informal settlements in Serbia that could be replicated throughout the country.
