Serbia has only existed as an independent state since 2006. Like many other Balkan states, it has dealt with a legacy of recent history. It is slightly larger in area, but has about one and a half million fewer inhabitants, comparing to the Czech Republic.
Arnika cooperates with several non-governmental organizations in Serbia. However, it has the most joint projects with the ALHem organization focusing on chemicals in products, with which we have been cooperating since 2015. In 2016, in cooperation with the CEE Bankwatch Network and CEKOR from Subotica, we monitored toxic substances in the vicinity of Serbia's Obrenovac coal-fired power plant.
Our activities are funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic from the Transition Promotion Program, the IPEN network (International Network for the Elimination of Persistent Organic Pollutants), and the Global Greengrants Fund.
