PREDA Plus representatives participated in a regional conference, “Monitoring of the EU Guidelines for the Support to Civil Society in the Enlargement Countries 2014-2020 – Year 1”, from April 28th-30th, 2015, in Belgrade, Serbia. The conference was organized by TACSO (Technical Assistance for Civil Society Organisations).
During the conference, possible inputs for the Country Progress Report 2015 were discussed in relation to the findings for 2015 against the EU Guidelines. Additionally, various mechanisms and methods were discussed and reviewed which would allow for the organization of possible national monitoring systems constructed according to EU Guidelines.
It is important to highlight that the aim of the conference was to establish a participatory monitoring system in which all CSOs and governments would contribute. Once established, the monitoring system would function and remain until 2020.
