Urban Governance/Integrity Building in South East Europe Urban Partnership Program Phase II (UPP II)
Since August 2015, Partners Albania as part of a regional consortium of organizations from Albania, Serbia, Macedonia and Croatia are implementing the“Urban Governance/Integrity Building in South East Europe Urban Partnership Program Phase II (UPP II).
The UPP II represents a logical continuation of the activities undertaken in SEE countries within the UPP I Strategic and Action Planning. Having set a solid foundation for Anticorruption/Integrity building in 10 municipalities from the first phase, in the second phase the program extends its activities further, through the dissemination of the Anticorruption methodology in about 10 new municipalities in the above mentioned countries.
Partners Albania will continue to support Kuçova municipality to revise its Anticorruption Strategy and Action Plan, to reflect the changes in the municipality resulting from the Administrative Territorial Reform, and to implement some of the actions identified in the Action Plan. In addition, Partners Albania will work with two other municipalities, based on their shown interest and commitment to implement the Anticorruption/integrity building methodology.
The project will culminate with the Regional Conference that will bring together all Mayors and public managers involved in the integrity building process in the region, along with the WB team, Anticorruption practitioners and international experts to share the experiences and lessons learned drawn from the implementation of the methodology in the SEE countries.
