Training program on cooperative planning
Partners Albania organized on April 2018 in Tirana, the first two-day training programs on Cooperative Planning, with the participation of 16 NPO representatives. The program aims to increase participants knowledge and skills on how to address a specific issue, opportunity or problem with the intent of resolving or exploiting it successfully through the collaborative effort of the crucial stakeholders. How to involve citizens in local decision-making and local actions, managing public disputes and conciliating different local interest was another issue of discussion and feedback sharing during the training.
During 2018, PA will organize two other training programs on this topic, targeting NPOs outside Tirana.
On 13-14th of June 2018, PA experts delivered another two-day training program in this topic, benefiting 20 NPOs representatives from Korça region. This training was a great opportunity especially for new NPOs, to increase their capacities on this topic but at the same time to build partnerships with other civil society organizations.
Other training programs in this topic will be delivered by PA in the following months, across the country.
The project “Partnerships of non-governmental organizations and self- government: Together for more effective participation” is implemented by Partners Albania in cooperation with Partners for Democratic Change Slovakia (PDCS) and is financially supported by Slovak Aid – Official Development Assistance of the Slovak Republic.
