First part of this meeting was exceptionally organized as a joint meeting of the Priority Areas 4 and 7, since both priority areas  co- coordinated  by Slovakia  decided to use the opportunity to organize their Steering group meetings back to back NCP-PAC Meeting and the 5th Financial Dialogue organised by the Slovak Presidency of EUSDR.

The main objective of the meeting was to inform each other (PA4 and PA7) on ongoing and planned activities of both Priority Areas and on important (flagship) projects. In separate session of PA4 there was given an overview about the on-going activities of the priority area on water quality (PA4) of the EUSDR, the ICPDR and the Sava Commission. Moreover, the new concept of strategic projects was introduced. The separate session of PA7 included the information about Interim Progress Reports on the implementation of projects financed by the EUSDR Technical Assistance,  information on up-dated PA7 Targets, state of the art of the PA7 working groups and common forthcomming joint activities, followed by the discussions on labelling of  PA7 Strategic Projects and on preparation of the PA7 Workshop during the 5th Annual forum of the EUSDR.
