New M4EG Members region-wide commence preparatory work for planning their local economic growth stimulation measures.

29 September 2017

Throughout September 2017 the Junior M4EG members in the 6 participating countries were being assessed on their existing individual and organizational capacity to manage economic development in their territories. The assessment tools included a facilitated participatory group discussion with the involvement of key local stakeholders, taking stock of their knowledge, skills and experience, as well as identifying gaps and bottlenecks to be addressed in the future.

Based on the aggregated results of the assessment commonalities and differences within the region were established, and a targeted capacity building programme will be developed to address the identified needs.

The results of the Capacity Assessment will be available online in late October 2017.
