The PRO-Local Governance for People and Nature Programme, is designed to contribute to improving the well-being and quality of life of citizens through improved local governance, social inclusion and environmental protection in 99 cities and municipalities in two regions: Šumadija and Western Serbia and Southern and Eastern Serbia. The Government of Switzerland has allocated CHF 9 million to fund the Programme which will be implemented by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in partnership with UN agencies (1) over a period of 48 months. 

To achieve the Programme’s Objective, the intervention will focus on three key Pillars and Outcomes: 

  1. Pillar Good Governance, Outcome 1: LGs improve capacities and apply good governance principles in practice;

  2. Pillar Social Inclusion, Outcome 2: LGs and other relevant local actors improve capacities and develop evidence-based local social protection policies;

  3. Pillar Environmental Governance, Outcome 3: LGs improve capacities and apply environmental governance processes in practice. 

The key stakeholders, but also direct users of support at the local level, will be local governments (cities and municipalities), including their administrations/staff, organisations, and local institutions (Centres for Social Work - CSWs, Primary Health Centres - PHCs, pre-school institutions and schools), local Civil Society Organisations – CSOs. The final users of support will be the citizens from participating LGs from the Region of Šumadija and Western Serbia, and the Region of Southern and Eastern Serbia.

All Programme activities will be undertaken in partnership with the Government of Serbia, especially the Ministry of Public Administration and Local Self-Governments (MPALSG), the Ministry of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs (MLEVSA), the Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), and the Standing Conference of Towns and Municipalities (SCTM).

The Programme will coordinate its activities with the key line-national-level institutions, while observing the national strategies, laws and relevant development documents, which will contribute to sustainability, ensure national ownership and develop national capacities.
