The European Union for Local Development Programme - EU PRO Plus is designed to contribute to reduction of socio-economic disparities in Serbia. It will support Šumadija and Western Serbia and South and Eastern Serbia, the two less developed regions, to tackle persistent underutilisation of development potentials and reduce social exclusion. While building on the momentum created by its three predecessors, this Programme will enhance territorial development management, support economic growth, and improve social infrastructure and cohesion. The European Union (EU) has allocated 30 million Euros for the implementation of the Programme during 36 months. The United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) was selected for indirect management.

The EU PRO Plus Programme will enhance national, regional, and local capacities for management of integrated and sustainable territorial development (ISTD) while considering the European Union (EU) territorial instruments and contributing to the fulfilment of the requirements of Chapter 22 of the EU Acquis related to the Regional Policy and the Coordination of Structural Instruments. These instruments are supporting local communities to take more responsibilities for planning their development and tackling socio-economic challenges, thus the approach is effective in terms of addressing regional disparities.

There are three results that the Programme will achieve:

  • Result 1: Improved development planning in targeted municipalities and introduction of the ITI concept

  • Result 2: Enhanced economic growth in targeted municipalities

  • Result 3 Improved social infrastructure and social cohesion in targeted municipalities

The direct beneficiaries of the EU PRO Plus are the Ministry of European Integration, local self-governments, regional administration structures, SMEs, civil society organisations (CSOs) and business support organisations (BSOs). The final beneficiaries are the inhabitants of 99 municipalities.
