9th meeting of the Coordination Board of the SEE 2020 Strategy
The aim of the meeting was to discuss and assess the state of play of the SEE 2020 Strategy implementation, with a particular focus on the 2017-2019 programming cycle with a particular focus on the following two topics: to provide discussion and agreement on the priorities as part of the 2017 – 2019 programming document, as well as discussion and agreement on the milestones for the development of the fully fledged SEE 2020 Programming documents 2017 – 2019. The other important topic was strengthening relations of the RCC Secretariat with the regional dimension coordinators and international organizations and initiatives to conclude a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the RCC Secretariat and the regional dimension coordinators and international organizations and initiatives.
The role of the regional dimension coordinators (and regional sectoral structures that act as coordinators for various policy areas - dimensions of the SEE 2020 Strategy) contribute to the programing process through submission of their summary of actions to be implemented by them and other regional actors, covering the three-year period of implementation, where SEECEL is taking part as a dimension coordinator within the smart growth pillar. During the programing cycle, the Regional Dimension Coordinators will also provide inputs and expert feedback on the SEE 2020 Programing Document, ensuring that the regional state of play in each relevant dimension is accurately presented.
SEECEL's representatives were Ms Efka Heder, Director and Ms Sandra Rončević, Assistant Director.
