          In view of strengthening the CSO networks` capacities in elaborating national climate risk assessments, a regional training was held in Struga (Macedonia), from 14-16 September 2011. The workshop was organized by the Macedonian Red Cross with the support of the Austrian Red Cross, the RC/RC Climate Centre and the WWF.

          Over 40 participants, members of the national CSO networks from Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro and Serbia, attended the training and had the opportunity to find out more about climate vulnerability assessments, their purpose and added-value. Further, inputs on experience and best practice in climate vulnerability assessments provided by the RC/RC Climate Centre and the WWF, deepened the participants` understanding on the topic and lead to the identification of methods for assessing climate related risks focusing on national and sectoral vulnerabilities. Subsequent working group sessions enabled a forum for discussion on existing expertise of participating CSOs, such as advocacy work or campaigning. At the same time potential gaps, such as the availability of scientific data were addressed and potential synergies discussed. Participants got a clearer picture on the complex process of climate risk assessments and elaborated their national terms of reference along the network`s priority areas, to be used for the risk assessment.

          As regards the purpose of the envisaged assessments, which shall be finished by mid-2012 and brought together on a regional level, almost all present network members agreed to use it for awareness-raising and communication, educational work and planning of further actions in the field of climate change and disaster risk reduction.

          The beautiful venue of the training at the Ohrid Lake contributed to a good working atmosphere and the workshop strengthened the CSO network members` expertise to conduct national climate risk assessments. On this occasion ties among network members from all four countries were strengthened, which contributed to valuable regional exchange and cooperation.
