The project includes the following results:

Result 1. Strengthened capacities of CSOs in targeted local self-government units for dialogue with public authorities;
Result 2. Established dialogue between public authorities and CSOs in the field of PPP in targeted local self-government units in Serbia;
Result 3: Promoted importance of CSO involvement in decision-making processes in areas important for local economic development, with a special focus on PPP.

The project targets 6 municipalities in Serbia: Bečej, Opovo, Topola, Lazarevac, Bajina Bašta and Ljubovija and is implemented in the period from 1 October 2022 until 31 July 2023.

The project is supported by the Belgrade Open School (BOŠ), within the wider project "Dialogue of Change, Supporting Reforms through Cooperation between Civil Society Organizations and Public Authorities", financed by the EU Delegation in Serbia.
