Dr John Powell has been working with a multi-national team in providing guidance to the Serbian Ministry for Agriculture, Trade, Forests and Water Management in the identification, screening and preparation of documentation for European Union IPA funded projects. The support work has been carried out during the period April 2010 to July 2011 through the Project and Programming Facility based in Belgrade to increase the quality of project implementation. The project has two components: first, prioritisation of projects through a sector wide analytical approach, and secondly development of project fiches together with full tendering documentation for IPA Components I, III and IV, together with national, international or other donor funding. The work involves close collaboration with a range of Ministerial departments and government agencies to support project development while promoting a clear sense of ownership among key stakeholders.
