FIS Development Programme for Developing Ski Nations
--> This page will be updated after the Council Meeting in June 2013 in Dubrovnik (CRO) <--
The FIS Aid & Promotion Programme for Developing Ski Nations was established using the funds from the World Championship Candidates fees following the decision by the 1996 FIS Congress in Christchurch (NZE) that the election of FIS World Championships Organisers would be delegated to the FIS Council. The first season the programme was in place was 1997/1998.
Currently the following 46 National Ski Associations ("NSA") are supported within the FIS programme of Aid and Promotion for Developing Ski Nations:
Albania (ALB), Algeria (ALG), Andorra (AND), Armenia (ARM), Argentina (ARG), Belgium (BEL), Bosnia Herzegovina (BIH), Belarus (BLR), Bolivia (BOL), Brazil (BRA), Bulgaria (BUL), Chile (CHI), Croatia (CRO), Cyprus (CYP), Denmark (DAN), Estonia (EST), Georgia (GEO), Greece (GRE), Hungary (HUN), India (IND), Iran (IRA), Ireland (IRE), Iceland (ISL), Israel (ISR), Kazakhstan (KAZ), Kyrgyzstan (KGZ), Korea (KOR), Latvia (LAT), Lebanon (LIB), Lithuania (LTU), Luxembourg (LUX), Morocco (MAR), Mongolia (MGL), Macedonia (MKD), Monaco (MON), Nepal (NEP), Pakistan (PAK), Portugal (POR), DPR Korea (PRK), South Africa (RSA), San Marino (RSM), Rumania (ROU), Serbia (SRB), Slovakia (SVK), Chinese Taipei (TPE), Turkey (TUR), Ukraine (UKR) and Uzbekistan (UZB).
Additional National Ski Associations are invited to participate in various Aid and Promotion projects, depending on the actual situation in each of the National Ski Associations and their efforts, activities and resources.
The Aid & Promotion Working Group consisting of three members from nations that are involved in the Aid & Promotion Programme coordinates the various activities within the programme.
The consultant for Aid & Promotion and Development activities, Josef Zenhäusern, collaborates with other development organisations and agencies that may be able to provide assistance for the various activities and initiatives within the FIS Aid & Promotion Programme. Planning, preparation, local organisation and implementation of all these various projects are kept to the minimum possible and maximum necessary in order that as much funding as possible can be directed to the activities.
