The Green MED Initiative project, funded under the ENPI CBC Med Programme, organized its 2nd Project Management & Steering Committee meetings in Barcelona, Spain on the 21st and 22nd of November 2013. The event was hosted by the project partner ASCAME (The Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry), and gathered the 11 project partners (PPs), as well as the Beneficiary of the Project, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry & Agriculture of Beirut and Mount Lebanon.
The purpose of the Project Management meeting was to discuss the project’s progress until date in terms of activities, outputs and work packages (WPs), in addition to the action plan. Each WP Leader delivered a detailed presentation of the work already completed and the work plan for the upcoming semester. The importance of collaboration between PPs and of meeting the set deadlines were also highlighted and stressed upon during the meeting.
The meeting was closed with a new approach: “One on One” meetings between the project’s technical assistance (TA) team and the PPs. The meetings gathered Mr. Albert Sorrosal & Mr. Josep Vicent Pastor from the TA team, and Mr. Fady El Sabeh & Ms. Sima Hojaij (Communication Coordinator of GMI) from the Beneficiary’s side, who discussed with the PPs all pending technical, financial, and communication issues as well any challenges facing the PPs during implementation.
