In May 2014, heavy rains resulted in extensive flooding and landslides in Serbia.
The natural disaster affected 1.6 million people or 22 per cent of the population. More than 32,000 people were evacuated and some 180,000 people were in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.
On 4 June, CERF allocated US$2 million in emergency assistance allowing humanitarian partners to provide safe drinking water, improved hygiene and sanitation and food. CERF also supported the restoration of sewage systems and electricity infrastructure damaged during the flood.
