The Project will have a positive effect on the overall socio-economic progress and greater social cohesion in Serbia since the refugee and IDP population is especially affected by poverty. The project’s activities will be implemented at the local level within identified priorities set out in local strategic and action plans. Beneficiary institutions and municipalities will be responsible for the results to be achieved and will be able to replicate similar activities to support additional vulnerable groups. Moreover it will be possible to share the experience of beneficiary municipalities with other municipalities in Serbia, in order to improve their capacities to deal with the problems faced by these target groups’.
At the moment, the planning process initiated at local level in targeted municipalities has already raised awareness about refugees’/IDPs’ problems. It has triggered interest in other neighbouring communities who expressed the willingness to participate in this process as well. The majority of municipalities in Serbia have shown great interest in tackling this issue in a more systematic and planned manner.
To assist in resolving the problems of refugees and IDPs in the Republic of Serbia through the provision of adequate support.
