Western Balkan Environment Forum 2020

0

The School of Public Policy Mother Teresa together with Schools of Political Studies from the Western Balkans, and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) organized the Western Balkan Environment Forum 2020 held in Hotel Hilton, Podgorica 8-11th November, 2020. The Forum was held the 9th edition of the World Forum for Democracy: Can Democracy save the environment? The following topics were discussed at the Forum:

  • National governments, international organisations or the citizen: who is setting the pace?
  • Public, private and nongovernmental: what role for which sector?
  • Sustainable Use of Energy in the Western Balkans and climate protection

For each of these topics an introductory session with experts presenting was organised. Following their opening remarks, a discussion followed. After each of these sessions, participants were divided in groups according to their professional backgrounds. One group was made of MPs, another of civil servants/public administration and the last one was made of members of non-governmental organisations and the private sector. The working groups reflected on the ideas presented in the introductory panels and drew from their own experiences to present unified and coherent statements on the topic by regional sectors. A plenary discussion was held following the presentations of each group.

Overall, many issues were raised and elaborated including, without ordering them in regards of their significance: Are national and international authorities’ moving more slowly than public opinion, or is public opinion actually holding them back? What is preventing governments from taking more radical steps? How can democracies and international organisations manage such competing factors and demands? Has the public or private sector done the better job in the area of prevention and mitigation of environmental damage– and which is best placed to provide meaningful change in the future? If we need the best of both sectors to fix the problem, then what form might new public/private partnerships take? What is the role of the nongovernmental organisations here? Are they mediators between business and governments? Should they follow their own agenda and how? How should the Western Balkans countries tackle issues of reducing energy consumption in energy-intensive sectors in times of Covid-19? How can they meet the goals for climate protection and sustainable energy use of the Paris Climate Agreement?

All expert sessions and working groups presentations and discussions were held live at the premise and online. Interested participants from the Schools of Political Studies from the Western Balkans were invited to follow and participate at the Forum online. The Forum was an opportunity for policy makers, civil servants, NGO activists and experts, from the Western Balkan region to meet and exchange opinions and ideas. Despite the extreme difficulties in organising the event due to the covid-19 pandemic the Forum as a satellite event of the 9th edition of the World Forum for Democracy: Can Democracy save the environment? was successfully implemented.

ЦИКП достави коментари по однос на предлог Законот за буџетите / CRPM delivered comment to the Draft Organic Law on Budget

0

Министерството за финансии го презентираше нацрт Законот за Буџет. ЦИКП учествуваше во јавната расправа: “Предложениот Закон за буџети, родовото одговорно буџетирање го споменува само во член 3 каде меѓу 11те буџетски принципи го регулира и принципот на родова еднаквост подразбира родово одговорно буџетирање, односно запазување на родовата еднаквост во планирањето и извршувањето на буџетските приливи и одливи. ЦИКП и Мрежата на организации кои вршат родов надзор врз буџетот го оценува ова за недоволно и ги достави следните коментари на нацрт Законот за буџети.”

The Ministry of finance presented the draft Law on Budgets. CRPM contributed to the public debate. “The proposed Law on Budgets mentions gender responsive budgeting only in Article 3 where among the 11 budget principles, one of them regulates the principle of gender equality. It refers to the gender responsive budgeting as taking into consideration the gender equality in the planning phase and execution of budget income and expenditures. The Gender Budget Watchdog Network assesses this as insufficient and submitted the following comments to the Law on Budgets”.
