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.
