LDA Central and Southern Serbia

LDA Central and Southern Serbia was established in 2001 in the City of Niš, Serbia.  In 2003 it was officially registered under the name Centar lokalne demokratije LDA under Serbian law.

With the aim of spreading its program further onto the territories in need, in April 2014 LDA has moved its headquarters to Knjaževac, a city in South-Eastern Serbia.  The LDA covers wider region by working in Niš, Knjaževac, Kraljevo and Kragujevac.

LDA aims to contribute to development of local democracy in the communities of Eastern, Southern and Central Serbia thru capacity building programs based on the principles of active citizenship and establishment of concrete mechanisms of citizens’ participation in development of their communities.
