As foreseen by the Inception report and Aide- Mémoire relating to CAMP Algeria , a number of consultation meetings will be organised for the duration of the project so as to examine the project's progress and to discuss the work of national teams in charge of the different transversal and thematic activities. The first of these meetings was held in the premises of the National Agency for Physical Planning (ANAT) - Kouba - Algiers , on November 13 and 14, 2003. The meeting was attended by the national project leader, leaders and certain members of the national thematic and transversal teams, the ANAT and CNERU representatives, as well as by the PAP/RAC representatives and consultants. After the presentation of the progress of CAMP activities, and in particular, of the first reports on the state-of-the-art established in the framework of the thematic activities, the participants have revised the working plan and calendar of the project in order to making up for the delays occurred. The participants have also adopted a series of measures which should ensure the regular progress of the project. A particular attention has been given to the dimension of natural risks, which should be reinforced after the earthquake in May 2003.
