ERP 2024-2026: Integrated Planning and Coordination - Kosovo*

Jul 12 – 13, 2023 Vërmica, Kosovo No Fee

About this learning event

This workshop will address planning and coordination aspects essential for 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 a cooperative planning for a 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.  

In further support to the ERP process, preceding this workshop, a high-level consultation meeting will be organized on July 11 with institutional leaders and HR professionals. At this meeting, we will highlight how the concept of learning organization can help ministries constantly develop the capacity to effectively design, cost, budget, implement and communicate SRs. Special attention will be given to good practices of policy coordination.
