After the first two-day work meeting held in Albania from April 8th to 9th, the second meeting with Balkan partners for the final certification workshop, a project’s activity devised to strengthen the understanding of EUAV certification process and requirements in view of application submission, will take place on April 27th-28th in Pristina, Kosovo*, at the Afa Hotel.
Working groups are articulated in four informal two-day engagements and will consist of two rounds of work meetings, with each set of meeting tailored to the specific needs of the partner organization that plans to apply for certification.
Italian experts from the Italian Department of Civil Protection, ANPAS, CIMA, Italian Red Cross and CISOM will interact directly witheach Balkan partner organization interested in submitting their application to becertified as EU Aid Volunteers Hosting Organizations, in order to assist them in reviewing previous course material and offer any needed clarifications on the application procedures. The objective is to strengthen the partners’ ability to remove existing gaps, update or integrate necessary documentation and devise appropriate procedures to ensure compliance with certification requirements.

This second engagement, in April,is entirely dedicated to the Kosovar partner EMA (Emergency Management Agency),who has requested further assistance in preparing he application submission. EMA managers and key operatives will have the chance to discuss more in depth the various aspects of volunteer management covered during previous trainings and to perfect their understanding of certification requirements.
