State of progress

The initial funds committed have been focused on national components while regional activities were based on promoters own resources and therefore limited, up to the end of 2016. In 2017 and 2018, thanks to a financial support from the French Ministry in charge of Environment, and Fondation of Prince Albert II of Monaco, lessons learnt from first NWIS implementations, have been used to organise a regional training session, a legal framework analysis, an exchange of experience workshop as well as to produce guidance documents.

 The current implementation progress is summarized in the following table:
