In September 2017, with support of CIVICA MOBILITAS, Analyica think tank started working on 6 months project, for transparency and accountability of public finances, but with special focus on public private partnership (PPP). The main research topic of the project is the legal framework for PPPs, PPP contracts, the process of implementation and monitoring of PPPs, as well as the challenges that institutions and companies are facing with in the process of implementation of PPPs.
In the next five years, Analytica together with Development Solutions Associates (Albania), Banja Luka University (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Faculty of Economics-Split (Croatia), Center for Political Courage (Kosovo), Institute for Socio-Economic Analyzes (Montenegro) and the coordinator Institute for Economic Sciences (Serbia), will work on a project funded by Bloomberg (USA) and implemented through the Chicago Illinois University (UIC).
In December 2016 Analytica think tank and ELIAMEP (Greece) started working on one year joint research project examining various layers of cooperation between Macedonia and Greece such as cross-border cooperation as well as education.
Analytica is happy to announce its next CVE related project titled ‘Working towards resilient communities’. The duration of the project will be 12 months, and it will include two segments.
Analytica during this period will work on the project Transport and energy sector's current standing in the country, how to accelerate the reform process which is funded by the IPA 2 CSO Mechanism, an EU funded project implemented by the MCET, Eco-Svest, Reactor and Zenith.
The aim of the project is improving the situation with the reforms in the sectors of transport and energy; greater involvement of civil society in the development of sectoral policies on the above topics; preparation of an expert report which will identify the main problems existing in these two sectors from which should result innovative solutions to accelerate the EU reform processes; improving public debates on policies that will lead to an increase in the number and quality of the participants in the debates on such important issues like energy and transport.
The analysis refers to two sectors: transport and energy, i.e. the responsible authorities for these sectors, the Ministry of Economy, Ministry of Transport and Communications, the Energy Agency, the Energy Regulatory Commission, etc.
The results of the research will be useful for the donors who help the Macedonian institutions in the reforming of these two sectors as well as civil society organizations working on issues related to energy and transport policies, the media and so on.
The second target group are the citizens who will be informed of the status of the reforms in these two sectors and what needs to be done in order to improve their functioning.
