The Norwegian Support to the Western Balkans Development “Norway for You - Serbia” is a project financed by the Government of the Kingdom of Norway and implemented by United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). 

Overall objective of the Project is to contribute to a more balanced socio-economic development in Serbia by increasing employment opportunities, support social cohesion and improve local infrastructure in the less developed areas. Special focus will be given to inclusion of youth, women and vulnerable groups in the labour market. Also, the Project will strengthen information security of the Government of Serbia.

Project is designed to be implemented on the territory of underdeveloped areas in Serbia, in total 91 local self-governments classified in third and fourth group of development (1). 

There are five results that the Project will achieve:

  • Result 1: Improved Access to Employment 
  • Result 2: Enhanced Social Inclusion
  • Result 3: Improved Living Conditions and Local Infrastructure
  • Result 4: Information Security of the Government of Serbia Strengthened
  • Result 5: Process of EU Integration of the Republic of Serbia Supported

The key stakeholders and the direct beneficiaries of the Project are 91 local self-governments (LSGs) from the third and the fourth group of development and their institutions and organisations, regional development agencies, civil society organisations (CSOs), business support entities (BSEs (2)), as well as individual beneficiaries, especially women and youth. The final beneficiaries are the inhabitants of the underdeveloped areas where the Project will be implemented, as well as line ministries of the Republic of Serbia, such as the Ministry of European Integration, the Ministry of Trade, Tourism and Telecommunications, and the Regulatory Agency for Electronic Communications and Postal Services.

All Project activities will be undertaken in partnership with the Government of Serbia, in cooperation with the national and local institutions, with the aim of allowing them to respect the legal requirements and, where relevant, EU accession criteria. This will ensure national ownership and help develop national capacities. Activities will also have good governance, human rights, gender equality, environment and climate and anti-corruption as transversal themes.
