The Institute for Strategic Studies and Prognoses (ISSP) organizes training for CSOs on the topic "CSOs for a more inclusive, transparent and green Economic Reform Program".

The goal of this training is to involve CSOs in creating a more inclusive, transparent and green Program of Economic Reforms (ERP). ERP is one of the main documents in the process of Montenegro's accession to the European Union, and represents the basis for the country's dialogue with member states and EU institutions on issues of macroeconomic, fiscal and structural reforms. This document does not only concern the country's economic policy, but also includes a series of structural reforms that permeate almost all sectors. The European Commission and the Government of Montenegro recognized the lack of CSO involvement when proposing, managing and monitoring PER. Therefore, as part of these trainings, CSOs, which are not or are insufficiently familiar with this document, will learn about its structure and the role of each of the stakeholders in PER. Also, through practical work, the ways in which CSOs at the local level can contribute to making this program and its measures meet the needs of CSOs and Montenegrin citizens, and at the same time to make them more inclusive, transparent and sustainable, will be presented.

The training in Pljevlja will be held on May 24th and 25th, and the deadline for registration is May 20th, 2023. We will inform the participants about the location of the training at a later date.

All civil society organizations registered in this municipality can apply to attend the training, by delegating 1 or 2 representatives who are actively involved in the work of the organization. Also, a certain number of places will be open to organizations from neighboring municipalities. Apart from CSOs, the call is open to all interested individuals, civil activists. A total of 10 participants will be selected.

Organizations/individuals who wish to apply for training should send an e-mail to issp@t-com.me

ISSP, as the organizer of the training, will provide materials, food and refreshments for the participants of the training. Accommodation will be provided to a limited number of participants, who come from neighboring municipalities. Transportation costs will be reimbursed in the amount of the bus tickets that the participants submit for inspection or in the amount of fuel costs.

The project "CSOs for a more inclusive, transparent and green ERP", implemented by the Institute for Strategic Studies and Prognoses, is supported through the program "CSOs in Montenegro - from basic services to policy formulation - M'BASE" implemented by the Center for Civic Education (CGO), Friedrich -Ebert-Stiftung (FES), Center for the Protection and Study of Birds of Montenegro (CZIP) and Politikon network. The project is financed by the European Union and co-financed by the Ministry of Public Administration.
