The Protector of Citizens met today with the representatives of the Association Duga from Šabac in order to agree on starting the joint implementation of activities dedicated to providing support to local self-government units in order to incorporate measures to improve the position of LGBTI people in local action plans (LAPs).

The activities will be in line with the Protector of Citizens’ recommendation from 2017 Regular Annual Report, reiterated in 2018 and 2019 Reports, that the local self-government bodies should explicitly include LGBTI people in local action plans and specify measures to improve their position, as well as to allocate appropriate budget funds for these activities.

This activity will be implemented within the EU-supported project of the Council of Europe "Promotion of Diversity and Equality in Serbia".
