The project Second Multi-Donor Trust Fund, related to capacity building support to the implementation of the Integrated Planning System (IPS 2) in Albania, has ensured a progressive enhancement of the IPS system in general. So far, the project has already ensured consolidated pillars of the IPS system, by contributing to the finalization and approval of the NSDI 2015-2020, as well as enhancing capacities related to the PFM reform in general, and especially to the MTBP implementation.
