Serbia Needs Assessment Report

This study is one of eight country needs assessments of civil society capacities conducted as a preliminary activity within the EC-funded project Technical Assistance to Civil Society (TACSO) in IPA Countries (EuropeAid/127427/C/SER/Multi/5 – additional services)

The report presents an update of the similar report carried out in 2009, not a comprehensive new research.

Information provided are based on the desktop research of relevant documentation, including legal and financial legislation, policy documents, previous civil society mappings and research, insight into the Registry of CSOs, input produced by the Local Advisory Group (LAG) members as well as inputs provided by representatives of 48 CSOs during the consultation sessions organised in Belgrade, Novi Sad and Niš in mid-September 2011. Additionally, the report includes preliminary data of the current baseline survey on the CSO sector in Serbia in the period of August – September 2011.
