Training of the regional coordinators (training of trainers) was held at the NSI Training Center in Slivek village, Lovech district under the project BGLD-3.001-0001 Novel Approaches to Generating Data on hard-to-reach populations at risk of violation of their rights”. The Regional Coordinators are responsible for organizing the forthcoming household survey at regional level.

The training was divided into two stages – for representatives of the Statistical Surveys departments of the Territorial Statistical Offices of northern Bulgaria in February 24-26, 2020 and respectively for representatives of southern Bulgaria in February 26-28. Lecturers were the NSI’s leading social surveys methodologists who developed the survey toolkit, as well as representatives of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).
