WeBER: Example of long-haul efforts to bring in structural changes in an institutional environment

It is our pleasure to inform you that the European Commission’s Mid-term Evaluation of the Civil Society Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey has recognised Project WeBER as one of the examples of long-haul efforts to bring in structural changes in an institutional environment.

As stated in the Report, WeBER demonstrated:

  • High relevance confirmed on the ground and by the EU’s decision to provide two-phased financial support;
  • Very good visibility of CEP (European Policy Centre, project coordinator) and TEN (Think for Europe Network) upstream and the capacity to mobilise national partners, who in turn relay the action downstream with local partners (financial and non-financial support);
  • Very interesting actions on defining civil society indicators for PAR, which WeBER shares with ReSPA and Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) and which is undertaken in cooperation with PAR line ministries in all Western Balkan countries.

The report stressed the importance of „multi-beneficiary projects such as WeBER, which represent long-haul efforts to bring in structural changes in an institutional environment that has recently become fairly acute and difficult (deterioration of the effectiveness of public administration, etc.). “
