Kotroman (Serbian Cyrillic: Котроман) is a village located in the Užice municipality of Serbia. In the 2002 census, the village had a population of 182.

Food Shortage[edit]

In August 2003, a food shortage occurred due to the village's main food supply being temporarily suspended. The village sustained itself on the crops it grew for a small amount of time, but there was not enough food to feed the entire village.

Goranka Basia, a woman living in the village took note of how long the shortage lasted. Translated to English from her journal it read, "We have experienced a food shortage in the previous months, I have noted that it lasted close to 68 days."

The food shortage was ended when the food supply was able to deliver food to their village.
