Center for Public Policy Research, Center for Organic Production of Užice, Association "Organski plodoviArilje", Association "Crvena Ranka" (on behalf of the informal network of agricultural producers "Slow Food Gledić"), association "Slow Food Network of Youth in Serbia" (on behalf of the informal network "Slow Food Convivium Velika Plana"), the Ibar Valley Development Association (IDA).
The project "Organic Agriculture in Zlatibor, Raška and Podunavlje County" is directly aimed at the lack of public support for organic agriculture in central and western Serbia, while methodologically,the project involves all key stakeholders: decision-makers, farmers, and consumers.
In Serbia, only about 10,000 ha of land is converted into organic production, while half is in the process of conversion (Organic production in Serbia, Serbia organica, 2014). In the Raška, Zlatibor and Podunavlje districts (Central and Western Serbia), a very small number (total of ten) of organic organic producers is registered.
The aim of the project is to contribute to the strengthening of the capacities of civil society organizations and other key actors in the Raska, Zlatibor and Podunavlje districts to publicly advocate the improvement of public policies at the local and national level in the field of organic agricultural production. The project advocates the introduction and consistent application of public research-based policies, as well as the introduction of support measures and subsidies in Raška, Zlatibor, and Podunavlje.
The project 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 Republic of North Macedonia) AKTIV (Kosovo*), CZIP (Montenegro), led by ORCA (Serbia).
