Workshop on Participatory Strategic Planning organised in Kosovo*

On 26 November, a workshop on “Participatory Strategic Planning” was organised in Pristina and targeted the Community Action groups (CAG) and Institutional Working Groups (IWG) from the two new municipalities, Prizren and Kamenica. The event was organised within the joint EU-CoE ROMACTED II Programme on “Promoting good governance and Roma empowerment at local level”, in close cooperation with the Forum for Development and Multiethnic Collaboration (FDMC). 

The workshop aimed to build the capacities of the local authorities and Roma Ashkali Egyptian communities to develop and implement plans and projects with a view to promoting inclusion at the local level. The workshop focused on ROMACTED II methodological steps, and 12 Principles of inclusive good governance applied to the Roma communities and adopted by the Council of Europe. 

The workshop presented the opportunity for municipal authorities and Roma communities to exchange and learn from each other’s experiences and develop a network.  The work in groups identified challenges but presented possibilities for improved inclusive strategic planning. We look forward to working with both mechanisms (IWG and CAG) during ROMACTED II.
