Creating the portal enabled the timely information, consultation and involvement of the interested public in the process of drafting the NAP, through regular publication of news and related materials. Through the portal, direct communication with citizens and all stakeholders is made possible both at the stage of drafting NAP, as well as in the implementation, reporting and evaluation stage.

The Operational Team held three sessions to discuss, harmonize and monitor the NAP development process.
