CBC - Cross-border cooperation

CBC, a key priority of the ENI, seeks to reinforce cooperation between EU Member States and Partner Countries along the external EU borders.

Timeframe: 2014-2020

Budget: €1.05 billion (ENI + ERDF, indicative)

Cross border cooperation supports the overall ENI objective of progress towards 'an area of shared prosperity and good neighbourliness' between EU Member States and their neighbours. To advance this goal, CBC under the ENI has 3 overarching strategic objectives:
  • to promote economic and social development in regions on both sides of common borders;  
  • to address common challenges in environment, public health, safety and security;  
  • to promote better conditions for ensuring the mobility of persons, goods and capital.

EU Cooperation with Syria is currently suspended due to the political situation in the country; however, since in principle Syria is eligible for cooperation under the ENPI, activities may be taken up again once the situation improves.
