EU financial assistance available to local and regional authorities in Mediterranean partner countries
The study will describe the general features of funds in place at the EU and national levels and will suggest the easiest ways of accessing them for local and regional authorities in Mediterranean partner countries (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Palestine, Syria and Tunisia). It will take the CoR publication of 2018 (done also by CASE experts) as a basis and update its content taking into account financial resources available under the Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI) for the upcoming financial period (2021-2027). Additionally to the 2018 study, this study will also cover COVID-related financial assistance for economic recovery.
Similarly to the previous publication of 2018, the study will include, for each of the programmes, a general description of programme's priorities, structure, budget and geographical focus, recent examples of projects successfully funded in a Mediterranean partner country, and a description of where and how LRAs can apply for funding within the programme concerned. The study will be published in the form of an updated brochure to be used as a manual/guide for local and regional authorities in Mediterranean partner countries and their associations.
