Introduction of a participative approach in CAMP Algeria
A training session for the young managerial staff of the Ministry of Physical Planning and Environment (MATE) and inspections of the environment of wilayas comprised in the CAMP Algeria , was organised in the premises of MATE, on November 10, 2003 . The session identified the persons who, with the additional training, could be able of implementing the participative programme of the CAMP. The first opportunity to apply the knowledge gained was provided to these future animators on the occasion of the workshop on the participative programme within the CAMP Algeria . The workshop, which was held in the premises of MATE and lasted for two days (November 11 - 12, 2003), gathered about forty representatives of the ministries concerned, administrations of the wilayas , public educational and research institutions in the domain of the environment, physical planning and coastal protection, and the associations of the civil society dealing with the environment. The work of this workshop was organised in four sessions, each of them composed of 4 to 5 working groups. The final objective of the workshop was to make a plan of actions for the implementation of the participative approach in each of the thematic activities of the CAMP. The PAP/RAC is very proud of the results of this workshop, which has aroused a great interest of all the participants, including the local counsellors who have taken an active part in the work of the groups.
