Access for women and children to services in the rural areas of Serbia

and proposed measures to improve their situation

Publication cover
UNICEF Serbia/2011


Population drops in 86% of Serbia’s villages, every other rural child (45.1%) faces deprivation and 76% of unemployed women in rural areas have never heard of any active labour market measures.

Depopulation and poverty characterize rural Serbia in 2011, as well as weakening those “internal” human resources which should be generating a significant part of the growth and development in rural areas.
