Ms. Lea Pavlovic, Training Manager at the ADKOM Training Center, pointed out in her presentation that ADKOM is actively working on capacity building and that last year one of the key programs developed by IAWD and D-LeaP had been implemented, i.e. the program "Commercial Efficiency and Business Planning ".

Mr. Jane Vrteski, ADKOM consultant, briefly informed the participants about the Danube Learning Partnership (D-LeaP). The representative of the Technical Partner of the Danube Learning Partnership and developer of the training program " Water Safety and Crisis Management: Basis of Operational Continuity of Disaster Risk Management", Mr. Christian Plohberger, provided the final presentation. During his address, he gave a brief introduction of the program, as well as stressed the importance of its implementation.

Ms. Lolita Stojanovska, Executive Director of ADKOM, stated that the program for PUCs will be implemented in Macedonian language and is designed on the principles of learning through practice.
