Transparent Funding in Serbia – Analyses and Recommendations


In the framework the efforts to strengthen the capacity of local CSOs for monitoring and advocacy in the areas essential for the functioning of civil society, covered by the Monitoring Matrix and the EU Guidelines for Support to Civil Society in Enlargement Countries, 2014-2020, BCSDN and Civic Initiatives have supported two organizations in Serbia in the development of policy papers in the area of transparent funding in Serbia.

The Centre for Development of a Democratic Society – Europolis published the analysis “Budget Line 481 – To improve the processes of monitoring and evaluation” (in Serbian only), aiming to address the need for increased transparency of state funds distribution to the CSOs, as well as for more efficient and appropriate spending. The other policy paper was published by the Center for Development of the Non-profit Sector – CRNPS under the title “Towards more budget policies at the local level – Budget line 481″ (in Serbian only). The aim of CRNPS’s project is to increase transparency in the use of public funds, indicating the weak spots in the system and offering solutions through public policy advocacy. Both papers include a thorough analysis and offer recommendations for improving the methods and transparency of budget funds distribution.

The projects are prepared within the Balkan Public Policy Fund (BPPF), as part of the Balkan CS Acquis Project, implemented by BCSDN and its partners, with the financial support of the EU and BTD.
