This training event for the JTSs/Antennae staff of the cross-border programmes Montenegro – Kosovo* and Albania – Kosovo was organised on 3 and 4 June 2015 in Podgorica.

The session was mainly focused on monitoring of CBC projects, including conducting monitoring visits and compiling monitoring reports.

Furthermore, considering the fact that majority of staff under Albania – Kosovo programme is newly recruited a certain portion of time had to be devoted to discussion on the general role of JTS in all phases of implementation of a CBC programme.

*This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo declaration of independence
