Even in this second year of its activity, the Center has continued to provide support for further strengthening the capacities of networks, coalitions and formal and informal groupings of CSOs, through the technical assistance program. Following an open call for expressions of interest, launched in July 2020, 4 networks were selected to assist in furthering their causes, giving priority mainly to new networks.
National Climate Network – newly established, by 9 organizations and groups of young activists, in order to advocate on the issue of Climate Change in Albania. As a new structure, the work within the assistance program is initially focused on the internal consolidation of the network through the drafting of a Strategic Plan for the next two years. Identifying the strategic objectives of the network, program areas as well as the internal organization of members in tasks and responsibilities are just some of the main pillars developed so far in this Plan. In the following, the work with the network will focus on increasing the network capacities in the design and implementation of advocacy and lobbying campaigns, for two of the priority issues identified in the Strategic Plan.
