3. Institutional strengthening – institutions have been supported in the process of developing and adjusting laws, by-laws, strategies, programs and measures for supporting relevant EU RES and EE related regulations.

Within the “Agroenergy” project, CeProSARD provided assistance to the Directorate for Hydrological and Meteorological Affairs of Republic of Macedonia for organizing workshops with the title “Provision of quality in solar collectors and systems”

Upon request of the Energy Agency, in 2011 the drafting of the Rulebook on Energy Performance of Buildings was initiated. The development of the Rulebook is performed by a workgroup established upon initiative of the Energy Agency, and in coordination with CeProSARD Association. This Rulebook is very important by-law which will contribute to gradually reducing high energy costs in buildings, than to taking into

consideration the energy factor when constructing new buildings, to introducing green certificates, and of course,

consideration the energy factor when constructing new buildings, to introducing green certificates, and of course, will contribute to achieving the strategic objectives of the country. Besides the Rulebook, the workgroup will also draft a methodology for its use.

In order to support the work of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Economy, CeProSARD Association developed a “Guideline for Foreign Investments in Republic of Macedonia”.

Project:”Think Global, Act Local – Youth in Action “

In August 2011, eight young people from Macedonia participated on the workshop for exchange of young people in Latvia, together with their colleagues from Latvia and Serbia. The objective of the workshop, which was part of EU financed initiative – „Youth in Action“, was to motivate young people in rural areas to participate in decision making processes and to raise their awareness regarding sustainable development opportunities. Besides the planned agenda, there was also time to visit local settlements and to taste local delicacies. Additional objectives of the Project were to become familiar with young people’s life in rural areas in other countries, to promote global thinking and to motivate young people to spend their free time in a way on which they would act more effectively locally. By using different techniques, the workshop tried to encourage the participants to identify ways to improve their local environment and to help them share their ideas, as well as to turn them into practical results. The participants finished a practical task, by building a solar collector of old waste materials found on the site - from old windows to old refrigerator cooler.

Main objective of the Project is to raise awareness of the population in the most affected areas regarding measures for mitigation of climate change, their impact and adaptation to climate change, as well as regarding possibilities for rapid reaction in case of floods.

During the Project, floods have been analyzed from the climate change point of view, that is, as a climate change consequence. After identifying areas in Macedonia most exposed to floods, the project activities were focused on educating local population and representatives of the municipalities concerned. The stakeholders were familiarized with the climate change consequences that we are facing, measures for adaptation and mitigation of climate change impact, and manners for dealing with and rapid reaction in case of flooding.

„Tree Day“ in Macedonia

On November 2011, the CeProSARD team participated in the activity “Tree Day” as part of the campaign for large scale forestation in Macedonia. The main objective was to replant the Macedonian forests after the large forest fires that took place in the last two summers, while the organizers also recognize the environmental benefits of this plan in the context of global warming. Our CeProSARD “tree planting day” was organized by our colleague Damjan, who lives in Sopishte, on Vodno Mountain. “Equipped” with tree seedlings, we went to his house and after the wonderful walk to the spring on the hill top, we decided that it would be better to plant the trees in Damjan’s garden, where they will be regularly watered and taken care of, and we would be able to visit them later on and inspect their progress.
