Workshop on the EU climate and energy package
April 29, 2014

On March 24 and 25, 2014, a Technical Assistance and Information Exchange (TAIEX) workshop was held in Tirana, Albania, on the EU's climate and energy package.

The meeting was organised by the European Commission's TAIEX with the cooperation of the Ministry of European Integration in Albania. The TAIEX instrument supports partner countries with regard to the approximation, application and enforcement of EU legislation. The goal of the workshop was to increase the awareness of the Albanian authorities in the context of EU climate and energy policies. Ms. Laureta Dibra, head of the Air and Climate Change Unit at the Ministry of Environment of Albania (MoE), a LOCSEE partner, delivered a presentation on the situation in Albania and the EU climate and energy package. LOCSEE was presented as an on-going project addressing capacity building and training for public authorities in the context of climate change. A summary of the activities carried out by the MoE as a LOCSEE partner was also presented. The workshop was attended by representatives of relevant ministries, including the Ministry of European Integration; the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry; and the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Water Administration.
