22 March, 14:05
(ANSA) - TRIESTE - Skopje (Macedonia) hosted the final event of the "Migralona" project on 14 and 15 March, a programme which was co-financed by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and conducted by the Focal Point Migration of the Central European Initiative (CEI). The goal is to improve the governance of migratory flows along the so-called 'Balkan Route', to prevent new emergency situations.

The Network of associations of local authorities of South-East Europe(NALAS), the Regional initiative for issues of migration, asylum and refugees of WB6 (MARI) and the CEI Secretariat along with international organizations (OSCE, UNDP, OIM) have addressed the regulatory and financial issues which have to be taken into account in order to improve the collaboration between local and central public administration, and the partnership with the third sector to support people who need international protection.

Within 'Migralona' a survey was carried out on the situation of the reception and integration of migrants in the western Balkans. The campaign aimed to promote in particular the vision and operational characteristics of the SPRAR Program. The functioning of the SPRAR in Friuli Venezia Giulia was described by the mayors of Aiello del Friuli and Venzone (Udine) and the staff of the Italian Consortium of Solidarity (ICS). The regional government commissioner, prefect Annapaola Porzio, also took part in the final conference in Skopje. The participants approved a joint declaration, which will be subjected to further testing in the different decision-making bodies of the WB6.
