The online training workshop Kickstarting the COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan for Informal Settlements in the UNECE Region for the Western Balkans subregion was held on 10 November 2021, 2.30–5 p.m. CET. In the context of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, UNECE has prepared the COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan for Informal Settlements in the ECE Region which was endorsed at the 82nd Session of the Committee on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management on 8 October 2021. This Recovery Action Plan is underpinned by assessment reports on informal settlements in the four project cities: Tirana, Albania; Podgorica, Montenegro; and Skopje, North Macedonia as well as Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
The Western Balkans subregional online training workshop was designed to get an understanding of the situation in the specific locations in the subregion and to:
- Raise awareness about the COVID-19 Recovery Action Plan for Informal Settlements in the UNECE Region and its key deliverables.
- Discuss with representatives of local and national authorities and local stakeholders how to best implement the Plan’s recommendations within their specific contexts.
- Present the online learning platform for the Recovery Action Plan with resources and trainings on the Plan’s implementation amongst other resources.
This online event offered an opportunity for exchanges between the representatives of the local and/or national authorities, the local stakeholders and the expert authors of the Recovery Action Plan on the priorities and challenges of recovery in informal settlements.
