Brief Description

Promotes sustainable territorial cooperation between border regions of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries by building the capacities of local and regional authorities to effectively manage future territorial programmes in the region

Objectives

The programme aims to promote sustainable territorial cooperation between border regions of the EaP partner countries in order to facilitate the search for joint solutions to common challenges in their border areas. It seeks to boost the capacity of local and regional actors in the bordering regions of partner countries that would help them implement territorial initiatives without the involvement of EU member states.

Actions in brief

  • Supports exchange of information and best practices of territorial cooperation through events or forums, publications and media;
  • Develops dissemination networks related to territorial actors such as ‘Euro-regions’ and international NGOs;
  • Trains local and regional entities for the development and implementation of joint transnational programmes;
  • Facilitates coaching of local and non-state actors in the EaP region by peers in the EU.
