Take action. Join us.UNDP is promoting sustainable economic growth, inclusive employment, gender equality and improved access to social services. Programmatic activities contribute to the availability and quality of employment opportunities and services for socially excluded and vulnerable people. These activities comprise active labour market measures that equip workers for employment in a knowledge-based economy, and which cultivate demand for labour, particularly women, youth, people with disabilities, and minorities.
Support for private sector-led job creation in the services, agriculture and manufacturing sectors aims at reducing urban-rural income disparities through area-based initiatives targeting isolated and disadvantaged regions. The economic crisis continued to have significant impact on the labor market. Even more worrying is the fact that employment declined even in sectors which had positive growth rates, implying gains in labour productivity and increasing informalities.
South and Southwest Serbia are the most economically and socially deprived regions in Serbia, with the consequence of generating intensive migration.
An increase in number of false asylum applications in several European countries was reported throughoutwith Serbian citizens remaining among the highest-ranked nationalities of asylum applicants in the EU. According to the German Federal Office for Migration and Refugees, 2, Serbian citizens, the majority of them reportedly members of the Roma community, applied for asylum in Germany for the first time in In October, following requests from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, the EU Council of Ministers discussed measures to address concerns about the number of asylum applications from Serbia and other Balkan states.
The Council stopped short of removing the visa liberalization arrangements in place since but, in effect, required Serbia and other states to introduce additional measures to prevent potential asylum seekers from leaving the country.
The Government continued to implement active measures to increase social inclusion of Roma and other vulnerable groups. This resulted in increased school enrolment of Roma children, and an increased number of teaching Roma assistants and Roma health coordinators However, availability of community-based services remains limited and Roma are exposed to multiple forms of exclusion. The majority of Roma still live in informal settlements under challenging conditions, with lacking personal documents and thus access to public services, and are thus by far the most discriminated group in the labor market.
Roma women face additional hardship by frequently being subject to in-family violence. At the same time, the national budget for active labor market measures has been significantly cut from 66 million EUR in to approx. The public condemn of violence against women, an area where UNDP has been active for several years, has significantly increased in The Government is showing more commitment overall, but the cooperation of relevant institutions with the mandate to provide adequate prevention, protection and support to the victims of gender based violence needs to be further strengthened.
UNDP remains strongly positioned to continue supporting the Government in gender related matters, given its proven expertise and tangible results achieved over the past few years. In social inclusion area, UNDP predominantly implemented inclusive development programmes.
Through Youth Employment Fund, UNDP supported over disadvantaged youth to get employment, vocational training or receive self-employment grants. UNDP assisted the Government to adapt more gender sensitive policies which contributed to an increase in reported cases of violence against women. In order to increase the rate of reported violence, UNDP supported the establishment of 4 new hotlines and 2 new hotlines for ethnic minority and Roma women.
UNDP supported the Police Academy, the Judiciary Academy and the Human Resources Agency of the Government of Serbia to introduce new curricula on violence against women and gender equality in their regular educational programmes.
In a total of state officials, police officers, and judges and prosecutors were trained on how to deal with victims of VAW without exposing them to secondary victimization.
UNDP contributed to raising awareness about gender equality and VAW by supporting publishing of articles on these topics in To balance this, UNDP trained more than 90 journalists and editors on taking a more objective view on the topic. Tangible results in this area were recognized in EU Progress Report.
