7 Future IPA3 Project: challenges (on basis of past lessons learned) Improve project management Commitment from beneficiaries Increase visibility of project related outputs Improve coordination at international level

8 Challenge 1: improve project management Clear and feasible definition of goals and objectives Straight forward description of tasks and roles of each key actor involved Common approval of project related nat. activities Enhance EC financial procedures at nat. level (VAT, LEF & BAF, service providers, training, etc) Ensure timely, concise reporting to stakeholders (EC, beneficiaries, coaches, etc.) Improve general communication channels between involved partners If B plan is needed, make it a real B plan

9 Challenge 2: commitment from beneficiaries Committed & reliable NC (in line w EMCDDA criteria) Reliability of network of partners / national experts Fully aware / supportive national decision makers Capacity of absorption (national vs. EU tasks) Improve communication to different involved national stakeholders (incl. dissemination of outputs) Raising awareness of national stakeholders (e.g. attendance at important meetings, conferences, etc) Seek national resources to ensure continuity / sustainability of achieved activities

10 Challenge 3: increase visibility of project related outputs Translate all key documents to national languages Increase visibility of IPA countries at EU level (e.g. country overview on EMCDDA web site) Prepare / participate in national launches of important reports / findings (e.g. ESPAD results) Better use of local and national press / media services Use of new information technologies to share TC project results (e.g. shared project web page, etc.) Develop mutual knowledge and understanding in order to ensure a shared ownership of project results

11 Challenge 4: Improve coordination at international level Improve cooperation between EMCDDA, Commission, EC delegations in IPA countries and Permanent Missions of IPA countries to the EU Improve cooperation with other EC services in the same area of intervention (e.g. TAIEX, Twinning, etc.) Improve cooperation with other international organisations (e.g. WHO, UNODC, Global Fund, etc.) Communicate more efficiently with all aforementioned interest groups as to ensure common approach and to avoid overlap / contradictory activities
