July, 02 2021
On 02.07.2021 the 3rd meeting of the National Steering Committee (NSC) of the MADAD-RSCP programme, co-chaired by AICS and the Lebanese Ministry of Interior and Municipalities (MoIM) was held in virtual mode. Attendees: representatives of the MoIM, the General Director of the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs (MoSA) and the representative of the Delegation of the European Union in Lebanon, responsible for local governance and local authorities, in addition to representatives of AICS and the Technical Secretariat of the Programme.

The Steering Committee acknowledged the progresses of the Programme notwithstanding the several penalizing factors (economic and financial crisis, social crisis, coronavirus pandemic and relevant lockdowns, Beirut port blast…). The NSC was illustrated the main components and criteria of the Call for Proposals for international NGO’s that will be launched in the next days and that will allow the starting of initiatives in partnership with Lebanese municipalities in line with the general as well as specific objectives of the Programme. The NSC has confirmed that this Call for Proposals is adequate to achieve the agreed objectives. The meeting was closed after announcing that the next meeting will be summoned in October 2021, hopefully in presence, to illustrate and acknowledge the proposals that will be selected by AICS evaluation committee.
