On November 26th, Mr. Joan Parpal, secretary general of Medcities and USUDS Project Leader participated in a Capitalisation seminar organised by the Joint Management Authority (JMA) of the ENPI-CBC-MED Program.

The aim of the seminar was to foster complementarities among the projects funded by this Program. This event was focused on projects dealing with Sustainable development and spatial planning and it is the third of its kind organised during the last weeks after the ones on Environmental challenges, held in Amman late October and on Culture and sustainable tourism held in Valencia the first week of November.

These meetings reinforce the willingness of the EC to promote best practices exchange and lessons learnt by projects tackling similar matters. Capitalisation has turned into a main priority for the JMA which considers that new projects should build on the experience of successful initiatives carried out in the past.
