The participants went through the keywords in each of the projects and presented their similarities stressing that cooperation and information sharing is well needed.
All participants presented their engagement in cooperating on making these projects a success and agree on sharing four important data: pool of stakeholders/experts, legislations and policies, studies, dates of the events.
The participants also agreed on the need to avoid overlapping activities, on the possibility of having the workshops for all projects in one event for maximum impact, on the need to market each other’s projects, e.g. mentioning all projects in the respective newsletters and websites, and mainly on the need for periodic meetings (steering committee), and the assignment of one focal point per project.
A second coordination meeting is being planned.
