This task is composed of three activities:
Training on using of geodatabase model and on populating the model with data
After RBMPs GIS will be implemented and operational, the Consultant will conduct training courses to teach users how to manage (create, change, retrieve, export, retrieve and delete) attributes of spatial dataset (layers), contained in geodatabase by using dedicated RBMPs applications.
Upon completion of the courses, participant will have a clear understanding on the application workflow and working with content of WIS GDB, layers and its attributes. The course will combine lectures and hands-on exercises (i.e. working at computers with practical applications) and encourages dialogues and interactions among Participants and Lecturer.
Training on River Basin management regarding to the development of RBMPs and final training on approach for next analysis of River Basin Management Plans
In order to define the exact needs of the stakeholders, the Consultant will undertake a capacity and training needs assessment, which will serve a duel purpose; namely to identify the main issues, tasks, responsibilities and capacity requirements of each institution for the implementation of water legislation, whilst also to identifying short and longer term training requirements.
In order to successfully undertake the key responsibilities and tasks prescribed in the Law on Water, which is focused on future implementation in line with the WFD, the present capacities of each institution involved in water-related management will be determined by prioritisation against the following criteria:
Training of administrative staff on writing reports
- Importance for the future implementation of the EU WFD and the development, coordination and implementation of RBMPs
- Urgency in terms of the capacity development
- Requirement for training for enhancement of specific skills in line with tasks specified in the WFD.
The training of administrative staff on writing reports will be in compliance with the reporting requirements of the WFD in order to enable the staff to provide information to the European Commission on the identification of River Basin Districts and Competent Authorities, as well as information on the analysis, monitoring programmes and River Basin Management Plans.
