The National Programme Director provides leadership at the national level and ensures effective implementation of the NCPP through planning, monitoring and review of project activities, identification and selection of project partners (including demonstration companies etc.) and advocacy and liaison with relevant national stakeholders in government and business sectors and civil society.
The National Programme Director is supported by a programme management unit that is hosted by the Environment Center for Administration and Technology in Tirana (ECAT), also referred to as the NCPP host institution. ECAT Tirana has appointed a lead technical expert (key resource for the industry demonstration component of the NCPP) and an information and training coordinator (to take charge of the day to day coordination, including e.g. organization of trainings and events, coordination of demonstration projects, preparation of publications etc.).
Furthermore, a pool of national experts is being established who are being trained under the NCPP in RECP service delivery, and subsequently utilized by the NCPP for short term assignments. So far over 30 national experts have joined the NCPP.
These organizational arrangements are illustrated below.
The team of Resource Efficient and Cleaner Production Programme consists of the following members:

Valmira Bozgo: NCPP staff
