Citizens’ Association "Resurs Centar" from Majdanpek and its partners implements the project entitled "Sustainable agricultural policies in the programmes of local government subsidies in Serbia - A.S.A.P.". The project encompasses the territory of 10 municipalities in Timočka Krajina and Braničevo, and its goal is to define priorities and measures to be financed in the coming year, based on consultations with users of incentives for agriculture and rural development from the municipal budget.

This one-year initiative is funded by the European Union within the regional project "Sustainable Agriculture for Sustainable Balkans: Strengthening advocacy capacities of CSOs and developing policies in the Western Balkans" implemented by the regional consortium of CSOs: IEP (Albania), FLOROZON (the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) , AKTIV (Kosovo *), CZIP (Montenegro), led by ORCA (Serbia).

The process of creating, adopting and spending these funds varies from municipality to municipality. In some municipalities, funds are allocated without a competition, somewhere the implementationis poor, and somewhere the awareness and interest of farmers, farms, and associations in incentives in agricultureis insufficient.
The municipality of Majdanpek each year allocates about 13 million dinars for the Programme ofincentive measures in agriculture, but only 50% is realized.

The ASAP project aims to explore the reasons for such low efficiency of incentive measures in agriculture and recommend measures to improve the efficiency of the Programme of incentive measures in agriculture for the five selected municipalities.
