ERP 2024-2026: Integrated Planning and Coordination - North Macedonia

Jul 4 – 5, 2023 Skopje, North Macedonia No Fee

About this learning event

This event will address planning and coordination aspects essential for the successful preparation of the 2024-2026 ERP. We will identify possibilities for developing the 2024-2026 ERP in a well-coordinated manner aligned with the latest specifics from the EC’s Guidance note. We will use this opportunity to initiate planning of structural reforms for the ERP, while taking into account the EC’s country specific recommendations, current progress in implementation of reforms, and the identified key challenges. Therefore, this event will provide space for cooperative planning for smooth coordination of the upcoming ERP cycle and for strengthening the ties between all contributors in the ERP preparation process. Participants will be encouraged to discuss, co-design and find clear agreements and activities, essential for their joint planning of ERP preparation.  

By attending this workshop, you will have the possibility to work with the ERP coordination team and representatives of other institutions involved in the ERP preparation process in your country. We will look into the specifics related to the planning, prioritization as well as coordination of the ERP process. 

Within addressing the ERP planning and prioritization process, you will:

  • Learn about the upcoming cycle for preparation of the 2024-2026 ERP and your role in it
  • Renew your knowledge about ERP and structural reforms fundamentals
  • Contribute to the identification of obstacles and prioritization of key challenges
  • Sketch structural reforms for the 2024-2026 ERP that most adequately address the identified priority challenges
  • Refresh knowledge about the Costing Guidance, and appraise how well-articulated measures’ description and sequencing can contribute to realistic costs and secured funding for their implementation
  • Assess how to effectively monitor implementation of structural reforms by using performance indicators.

By learning how to integrate and align the ERP coordination process, you will:

  • Gain insight into the coordination process that leads all engaged officials to work on and finalize a quality ERP
  • Add your ideas and views in facilitated discussions to align the process (potential improvements in coordination, information flow, authorizations, and collaborations practices)
  • Better connections enable better coordination - participate in bringing together participants in the ERP process and encouraging stronger ties between them 
  • Participate in enabling collaborative planning for smooth implementation of the ERP  process
