Regional Donor Conference: Filling in the Budget Gaps in Roma Integration Policies
The Regional Cooperation Council’s (RCC) Roma Integration 2020 (RI2020) Action Team organizes a Conference to address the needs and priorities in the Western Balkans and Turkey concerning filling in the budget gaps in Roma Integration Policies, with a specific focus on employment and housing for Roma. The Conference will bring together national governments from the Western Balkans and Turkey, active donor organizations in the region, financial institutions, and regional initiatives.
The main objective of the Conference is to create an adequate forum for participating economies and donors to discuss needs and priorities for Roma integration, in particular in the areas of employment and housing. It also aims to identify and match adequate funding opportunities either on bilateral or regional basis for measures and programs that cannot be fully funded from national budgets. The conference is also hoping to contribute to a better coordination among donors and increase the complementarity of efforts and results in the Western Balkans and Turkey.
