PLATFORMA (2015-2017)

2015-2017 period – For the third consecutive period, CPMR is a partner in the consortium of this project, which aims to address the territorial approach to development policies. The CPMR contributes to PLATFORMA’s ‘core activities’ and to the dialogue with the European Southern Neighbourhood. The project kicked off on 1 August 2015. More recently, the IMC-CPMR has been contributing by elaborating a report with the final aim of helping to organise a training module addressed to local and regional authorities, notably from the Southern IMC members. The training will deal with capacity building for integrated territorial development.
