In Poland, from November 12 to 19, 2006, a study tour was organized for representatives of administration and non-governmental organizations from Montenegro to visit Polish institutions that deal with EU integration. The study tour was entitled “For you it could be difficult, too – Make the process less painful”.It was aimed at transmitting Polish experience of EU integration process, especially in the field of environmental protection and sustainable development.
The Study tour was realized within a project initiated by the Institute for Sustainable Development from Warsaw, one of the Polish social organizations that had been most active in contributing to creating and raising awareness of the process of Polish accession to the European Union. The Institute’s partners in this project were UNDP (United Nations Development Program) Office in Montenegro, Office for Sustainable Development from Podgorica and, as the main partner, EXPEDITIO – Centre for Sustainable Development from Kotor. The project was supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Poland, in the part that referred to assistance of foreign and international development cooperation.
The participants in the Study tour were 10 representatives of non-governmental organizations and 5 representatives of administration of Montenegro.
The project resulted in a publication “Montenegro on the path to European integration – Experience of Poland” being issued. >>>
