handbook on 'European Union Funding for the Neighbourhood and Russia', compiled by the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre and available in English, French, Arabic and Russian, has been released recently. The latest of the Info Centre’s series of handbooks seeks to demonstrate how some of the funding for the Neighourhood works, who is involved and where they can find out more.
The handbook is divided into: the funding instruments, how EU Delegations deliver cooperation, the Thematic Instruments, How Funds are Allocated, Grants and Contracts, Budget Support and Cross Border Cooperation. It also looks into how governments in the Neighbourhood partner countries are supported to bring about the change. The handbook also looks at institutions offering lending, like the European Investment Bank, and lists some ongoing funded projects giving the reader an idea of what’s available.
The handbook also includes a glossary of EU funding terms, with links to where one can find out more. Spread over five pages, the EU Funding Glossary can be printed out separately making it a stand-alone product.
This handbook is part of a series of publications produced by the EU Neighbourhood Info Centre.
