In FosterREG project, capacity building activities are the central part of the project. Capitalizing on the experience from the first year of the implementation, all project partners have been engaged in the planning of capacity building process for their national stakeholders and preparation of the appropriate material and themes.
During the capacity building, stakeholders will receive training with the attention given to the main issues identified:
- raising the awareness about energy efficiency in urban regeneration (in general public and among the public officers),
- enhancing funding schemes and financial instruments,
- developing and fine-tuning the legislation,
- improving vertical and horizontal integration and coordination of the government.
After a lot of work in the preparation, planning and creation of capacity building materials, the capacity building process has started. First of this events have been already held in Croatia and Spain.
