The programme will have an impact on the life of direct target groups (refugees and IDPs) who will be able to achieve their preferred durable solution – integration or return, as well as on the wider domestic population and local community i
The Project aims, within its scope, to ensure full access to rights for refugees and IDPs in Serbia through the provision of coordinated activities in the realm of economic and housing support, legal assistance and return as well as access to social services.
Although all the activities necessary for the realization of the Project will be undertaken jointly or in close coordination by the three beneficiary institutions, the leading agency for oversight of the implementation of activities under Component 1 will be the Commissariat for Refugees for activities 1 and 2, and Ministry for Kosovo and Metohija for activity 3. Ministry of Labour and Social Policy will be leading institution for the activities under Component 2.
Component 1 will be implemented through a Call for Proposals through which grants will be awarded to organisations that will be selected to implement the activities, based upon criteria that reflect the specific skills and experience needed in this area of work. Commissariat for Refugees and Ministry for Kosovo and Metohija , as was the case in the IPA 2007 and 2008 projects, will closely cooperate with the organisations which will be selected through the Call for Proposals to receive grants for implementation of the project activities.
Component 2 will be implemented through a Call for Proposals and a service contract for the technical assistance necessary for managing the grants scheme. Through this Call for Proposals, grants will be awarded to municipalities based upon criteria that reflect the sustainability and impact of their proposed projects. The technical assistance will be provided for the design and delivery of the training to future service providers, organisation of the public awareness campaigns and implementation of Call for Proposals.
The Contracting Authority for grants under Component 1 and 2, as well as for the service contract will be the EC Delegation.
