Local Consultation Mechanism - Workshops with Stakeholders from Aiud Municipality and the Central Region.

During the period of January - June 2023, Transparency International Romania organized 3 workshops with the objective of consulting stakeholders from Aiud Municipality and the Central Development Region regarding a collaboration mechanism between local civil society and local public administration, a mechanism developed within the project.

The workshops took place on 30 January 2023, 27 February 2023, and 16 June 2023, and brought together representatives of local public administration, namely the Aiud Municipality, NGOs from the Municipality and the Central Region, and social partners for discussions.

The main conclusions of the workshops were that such a mechanism is more than necessary in the project implementation area and that the tool is useful for both civil society and public institutions. Moreover, the feedback from participants on the presented documents was positive, and their additions help in developing a realistic and functional mechanism.
