Assessment of Development Results - Serbia

A decade of regional warfare during the 1990s, intervention by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the authoritarian policies of the Milosevic regime left Serbia socially, politically and economically devastated. Serbia became isolated from the international community, and the transition brought a number of costs. The assessment is based on an evaluation of current and past programmes and extensive stakeholder consultations. It provides an analysis of the extent to which United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has positioned itself effectively to identify and respond to national development needs. It also offers an overall assessment of the development results in the areas of post-conflict transition achieved in cooperation with the Government and other development partners.

Hide / Show Abstract

A decade of regional warfare, intervention by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and the authoritarian policies of the Milošević regime devastated Serbia, politically and economically. It also led to the suspension of virtually all international cooperation and isolated the country from the international community. The democratic transition since 2000 has been shaped by Serbia’s long-term goal of membership in the European Union (EU). Reforms have been under way over this period, and there have been successes in respect to economic reform, growth and stability, coherent policy evolution, improvements in the legislative framework and social sectors. However, much remains to be done.
