Capacity Building Seminar for Serbian CSOs

Coalition for monitoring of development assistance „Aid Watch Serbia“ held two capacity building seminars for representatives of Serbian civil society organisations on planning and monitoring of development assistance in Serbia.

The first seminar was held from 5th to 8th of April 2014, while the second seminar was held from 24th to 27th of September 2014. On both seminars participants had the opportunity to learn more about the basic concepts related to official development assistance, programming and monitoring process of ODA through interactive sessions and presentations.
Experts from Slovenian and Croatian national platforms presented the elaboration process of annual aid watch reports and also provided information on platform building. Experts from Macedonian Centre for European Training (MCET) presented reports on the implementation of the Youth in Action program in Macedonia, a report on the implementation of the IPA program 2007-2013, as well as the report on Community programs and its results in Macedonia.

This was the first time ever that capacity building seminars on these topics were held in Serbia and both seminars gathered around 50 CSO representatives from the whole country. The seminars were implemented as part of project “Towards active participation of CSOs in the process of programming of international development assistance" supported by Foundation for an Open Society Serbia.

"Aid Watch Serbia" coalition is a non-formal association of civil society organisations from Serbia interested in improvement of the effectiveness and transparency of development assistance sent to Serbia, but also in other kinds of development programs intended for citizens of Serbia. The coalition was established in March 2013. For more information please visit or contact Petar Djurovic.
