The project teams will supervise the local management structure and offer training to enhance the organizational and technical capacities of local committees, to associate them in control, monitoring or planning activities activities. The process will follow a "learning by doing" approach for the joint surveillance mission, the updating of the management plan and the awareness-raising activities.
