Description of programme
"IPA CBC Romania – Serbia"

The programme strategy focuses on the key challenges of the border region and the responses that are available to address problems that exist, namely:

  • Overcoming specific issues related to the connectedness of the region, both internally between the border regions, and crucially also externally between the border region and neighbouring areas,
  • Tackling the lack of competitiveness which is a common issue affecting the economy of the border area as a whole, with negative impacts in both the Romanian and Serbian border areas. This includes issues such as entrepreneurship and business activity, innovation, and levels of investment,
  • Addressing key issues of rural development which are characteristic of the regions on both sides of the border, and which would benefit from joint cross-border action in relation to key areas such as (inter alia) agriculture, rural tourism development, and specific labour market challenges in rural areas,
  • Dealing with the significant common challenges in the environment and in specific aspects of local/regional preparedness in relation to cross-border emergency situations,
  • Overcoming the border as a perceived “division”, and promoting greater cooperation and contact between regions and communities on both sides of the border.

The programme focuses on the following priorities:

Priority Axis 1: Employment promotion and basic services strengthening for an inclusive growth,

Priority Axis 2: Environmental protection and risk management,

Priority Axis 3: Sustainable mobility and accessibility,

Priority Axis 4: Attractiveness for sustainable tourism.

Eligible areas in Serbia are 6 districts: Severnobanatski, Srednjebanatski, Južnobanatski, Podunavski, Brani?evski and Borski.
