About the programme
The Ministry of Development, Public Works and Administration (MDPWA) organized consultations with key actors in the Programme area to ensure transparency and published all documents related to the programming process on the Programme website for public consultation.
The Programme area includes three counties in Romania and six districts in Serbia. The Programme will have a budget of nearly 90M EUR and will finance projects on environmental protection, healthcare and education, tourism and culture, and border management. Funding for these priorities will be provided by the Instrument for Pre-Accession assistance (IPA III), Romanian state budget co-financing, and own contributions from the Romanian and Serbian beneficiaries. Projects must dedicate at least 50% of their budget to investment activities. The types of actions defined in the Programme are assessed as compatible with the DNSH principle. The Programme authorities rely on citizens and communities from both countries to have a dedicated involvement and strong cooperation in order to deliver on the objectives of the new Programme and implement good projects.
