ENI CBC MED Programme

The European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) aims to develop a special relationship between the EU and each of its partner countries, contributing to the development of an area of shared security, prosperity and good neighbourliness. To this end, the EU has been working hand in hand with its Mediterranean partners to design cooperation programmes that take into account each country’s specific needs and features.

Cross-border cooperation (CBC) has an essential role to play in the general ENP policy context. It is distinct from other forms of cooperation by virtue of operating for the benefit of both sides of the EU’s external borders, and it draws on funding from both external and internal headings of the EU budget. CBC programmes between EU member states and Neighbourhood partners are among the types of programmes supported by ENI, which builds on lessons learnt from the ENPI CBC Programmes.

The General Objective of the ENI CBC MED 2014-2020 is to foster fair, equitable and sustainable economic, social and territorial development, which may advance cross-border integration and valorise participating countries’ territories and values.

Two Overarching Objectives – which are consistent with the needs of the territories of the Programmes – have been selected out of the three proposed by the Programming Document:

A – Promote economic and social development

B – Address common challenges in the environment

In line with the Overarching Objectives of the Programme, four Thematic Objectives have been singled out from the list of ten such objectives, provided by the Programming Document to form the backbone of the ENI CBC Med Strategy. These four thematic objectives are considered most relevant and appropriate to consolidate the cooperation initiated through the Programme 2007-2013. They are:

A.1 – Business and SME development

A.2 – Support to education, research, technological development and innovation

A.3 – Promotion of social inclusion and the fight against poverty

B.4 – Environmental protection, climate change adaptation and mitigation
