The Roadmap is grounded in SEESAC's unique approach of fostering cooperation and building confidence in the Western Balkans for achieving concrete and measurable results contributing to transformational change for the region as a whole. In particular, at the regional level, different cooperation processes facilitated by SEESAC, involving both policy-makers and operational level practitioners, have proven to be an essential ingredient in ensuring an enabling environment for knowledge transfer, expertise exchange, information-sharing and planning and coordination of activities at the regional level. This has served not only to increase the capacities in the region but more importantly to build confidence and foster direct cooperation among institutions and individual experts, which, among other things, enabled the development of the Roadmap. The Roadmap will continue to foster regional cooperation as the essential enabling element for measurable results.
To ensure coordination of efforts in the implementation of the Roadmap among jurisdictions in the Western Balkans, implementing organizations and donors, SEESAC was tasked through the same EU Council Decision until 2021 to organize twice per year Regional Roadmap Coordination meetings focusing on taking stock of progress and information exchange at the regional level. At the same time, SEESAC is supporting the organization by the SALW Commissions twice per year, local coordination meetings with the aim to coordinate the efforts and monitor progress at the jurisdiction’s level in the implementation of the Roadmap.
