14th of December 2012: International workshop – ”ODA institutional practices in Visegrad countries + Romania and Bulgaria)

This was the first event organized within the project ”Enhancing the capacity of Visegrad states + Romania and Bulgaria to act as ODA donors in the Black Sea region”.

This project aims at establishing a network of official development assistance (ODA) stakeholders in the six countries in order to change information and best practices, as well as to develop common proposals and projects to be implemented by the six countries, by NGOs and state officials. Two comparative studies will be written by the project`s team, involving the local experts. The first study will describe the ODA institutional framework and practices in each of the Visegrad + 2 countries. The workshop was meant to help draft this first study, which will be published in February 2013.

 The project is funded by the Black Sea Trust of the German Marshall Fund
