Implementation of Programme Budgeting and Capital Investment Planning in Five Local Self-Governments in South-West Serbia.
The project is funded by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), which is an implementing entity for the EU PROGRES Programme sponsored by the EU, the Government of Switzerland, and the Government of Serbia. The project provides practical technical assistance to five municipalities in South-West Serbia and builds their capacity in the interlinked domains of Program Budgeting (PB) and Capital Investment Planning (CIP).

These are especially important given Serbia's aspiration and actions toward EU accession. More
