Serbia Action Plan Review 2020-2022 – For Public Comment
In 2021, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the Action Plan Review for Serbia’s fourth action plan. The report provides a technical review of the action plan’s characteristics and the strengths and challenges the IRM identifies to inform a stronger implementation process.
In Serbia, the IRM’s findings are summarized below:
Serbia’s 2020–2022 Action Plan tackles diverse policy areas, and its promising commitments seek to better inform and engage the public on pressing national issues. However, the overall ambition of the action plan is low, on par with previous plans. The IRM recommends strengthening future action plans by incorporating more thorough milestones that effectively leverage each other to achieve the stated goals. It also recommends more suitably integrating higher-level public servants throughout the country’s OGP process so that the selected priorities become better integrated with government priorities and are addressed in greater depth.
The report is available in English and Serbian. The public comment period closed 29 July 2021.
