The diagnosis phase of the plan is progressing with interviews with some key internal and external actors. It also identifices 8 thematic priorities of the regional agenda based on the analysis of the agenda of the other Mediterranean actors also. In the coming months, interviews with members of the association and the formulation of the document of facts, challenges and projects (F,C,P) will take place.
  • Approval of the general accounts of the association for the 2019 financial year
