Black Sea Basin 2014-2020

The Black Sea Basin Programme 2014-2020 is part of European Union’s Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) under its European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI).

ENI CBC receives funding from ENI as well as from the European Regional Development Fund and the Instrument for Pre-Accession which is pooled together. All sources of funding may be used on either side of the EU external border for actions of common benefit.

The Black Sea Basin ENI CBC programme 2014-2020 builds upon the previous cooperation framework, the Black Sea Basin ENPI CBC programme 2007-2013, under which 62 projects were awarded and implemented in 8 countries surrounding the Black Sea Basin.

As a result of the completed analytical and consultation process, the Black Sea Basin programme will focus on a set of objectives and priorities, reflecting the countries’ specific circumstances and requirements, as presented in the table below.
