Common Country Analysis - United Nations in Serbia 2021
The Common Country Analysis (CCA) responds to the urgency of the 2030 Agenda by delivering an evidence-based analysis of
the context for sustainable development in Serbia. The analysis integrates the overall commitment of the United Nations (UN) to
UN Charter values, the Leave No One Behind (LNOB) principle, and international norms and standards. It rests on traditional and
non-traditional quantitative and qualitative data and sources, including a broad, regular consultation process, described further in
the methodology section.
This CCA is updated annually and examines the current situation in Serbia with respect to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It highlights progress made towards nationalisation and achievement of the SDGs within the context of the process
of accession to the European Union (EU) and in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It identifies challenges, including:
structural weaknesses; entrenched inequalities; and incomplete strategic, legislative and policy frameworks, as well as shortcomings
in performance and effectiveness and gaps in implementation.
