Discussing an Area-Based Development (ABD) approach in the Western Balkans, Serbia, May 2011

As a direct follow up to round table discussions held at both the 2008 and 2010 EastAgri Annual Meetings, the Ministry of Agriculture of Serbia hosted a conference on "Facilitating an Area-Based Development (ABD) Approach in Rural Regions in the Western Balkans". The conference was attended by over 70 participants from the national and international communities. The main purpose of the conference was to present the results of a pilot project in the Tara-Drina area and to raise the interest of the donor community to widen the implementation of such an approach in the Tara-Drina area. The European Commission funded project, implemented by the Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) of the EC's Joint Research Centre (JRC), facilitated an area-based development approach (ABD) in the Tara-Drina area, a rural cross-border area stretching over Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro and Serbia.
