REC hosts regional LWSAP training
Mr. Radoje Lausevic, deputy executive director of the REC, opened the event by summarising what the participating communities have achieved thus far. Subsequent sessions will focus specifically on progress made by municipalities within Activity 3, Steps 5 and 6, of the LWSAP methodology — that is, public opinion assessments and local water security assessments. The municipalities will then present to other project stakeholders the provisional results of the public opinion and water security assessments carried out by each local planning team. They will later discuss how the results of those assessments should be taken on board for Activities 4 and 5 — identifying problems, and formulating solutions and the concrete steps to achieve them.
The training also provides an opportunity to introduce members of the participating communities to the WATER SUM project's brand new distance learning platform. Participants will be shown how the platform can increase not only their own capacities, but also those of their colleagues and other stakeholders on the ground.
To end the event, a field trip has been organised to two different locations in Hungary, giving participants an opportunity to observe the water management practices and technologies employed in an EU member state.
