  34. 34. Regional Planning and Programming and Follow on Project Development Key Indicator for Our Work • 8 (11) regional sector plans • At least 90 investment project fiches for investment projects in public assets with a total worth of up to 170 million Euro in the areas water and sanitation, solid waste management and energy efficiency of public buildings are prepared based on integrated and participatory local planning exercises and in line with sector priorities and norms. (baseline 2011: 0; source: number of project fiches developed) Pagina 36
  35. 35. Relation to Key Indicator All project concepts related to Regional Sector Programmes are: • Consistent with regional (sector programmes) and identified as part of process by stakeholder • Consistent with general national policy directions • Locked into a process and method of project development that will ensure ownership and sustainability • Accompanied by an attempt to encourage key actors to undertake “accompanying measures” to ensure smooth implementation, sustainability of results and of relates services Pagina 37

  38. 38. The Logic Regional Planning (1) Project Identification (2) Project Development (3A) Targeted Sector Reform (3B) Financing (4) Sustainable projects and services driving durable change Type presentation title here Pagina 40
  39. 39. Financing Issues • In EE, already more projects than available investment financing (shortfall = approx 9 MEUR). By early 2015, the shortfall will be greater (est. 9+5) and by end 2015 in the order of at least 25 MEUR if financing is not found • In SWM, shortfall of resources likely in Q2-2015 to complete full technical design and tender book of major infrastructure in 3 SWM zones and to accelerate work on 3 other zones. • However feasibility studies/EIA and conceptual technical design will be complete for 3 zones with prospect of implementation by start 2016 (for investments near 30MEUR) • In WSS, shortfall of resources likely in Q2-2015 to complete full technical design and tender book of major WSS infrastructure in 12 rayonal centres and to expand to others. • Feasibility studies/Environmental Management Plans and conceptual technical design will be complete for 12 projects with prospect of implementation by start 2016 (for investments near 25MEUR) • Roads – to be determined but likely as WSS Pagina 41
  40. 40. Conclusions More resources will be needed: • (i) to finance the implementation of a (conservatively) estimated 100MEUR of ready or near ready to go projects by end 2015/start 2016 • (ii) to support finalisation of project preparation in certain “heavy” areas e.g. SWM, WSS • As MRDC, RDAs, LMs work to develop programmes, projects and reform respects sectors (eg SNIP/GOST etc), IFIs and donors need to anticipate and plan for a major shift if real financial demand Pagina 42
  41. 41. Capacity building with a view to implementing ENPI programs and applying for ENI programs • Organization of eight public consultations to identify priorities for the following cross-border cooperation programs. Pagina 43
  42. 42. Capacity building with a view to implementing ENPI programs and applying for ENI programs • Organization of three working group meetings on cross border cooperation programs for 2014-2020. • Organization of trainings on the implementation of transnational cooperation projects funded under the Transnational Co-operation Program “South-East Europe” for the period 2007-2013. • Provision of individual consultations regarding the implementation of cross-border cooperation projects. Pagina 44
  43. 43. Implementation of regional development policies by capacity building of LPAs, RDAs and RDCs • 8 trainees from the Public Administration Academy have the opportunity to strengthen their practical skills in the field of regional planning and programming by participating in sector workshops and study visits to pilot projects. • Piloting of the “Regional Development” training program (40 hours). • 17 trainers in the field of regional development • Curriculum document • Participant's Guide. • Facilitator's Guide Pagina 45
  44. 44. Further activities • Organization of working group meetings on cross border cooperation programs for the period 2014-2020. • Organization of workshops on implementing projects financed under the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI). • Supporting trainees from the Public Administration Academy upon master's thesis completion. • Implementation of continuous training programs on “Local and Regional Planning and Programming” and “Regional Development”.
