Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) and Resilient Local Development
Following the floods of 2014, and again in 2015, Serbia faced the shock caused by the flow of over a million refugees and migrants transiting through its territory, during the global migration crisis. UNDP worked with the Government of Serbia and international donors to help host local communities recover and improve their infrastructure, social cohesion and public services (health, education, social services, water supply, waste management), as preconditions for economic and social development of municipalities impacted by the crises.

UNDP works together with international and national partners to ensure that cities and communities in Serbia are better prepared for shocks and that they can quickly recover and return to normal development with minimal loss of lives and livelihoods.
