Over € 209 million have been granted by the European Union to the ENI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme for the period 2014-2020.
According to the Programming document, a fifth of the financial allocation for Cross-Border Cooperation (CBC) under the European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) total budget - € 1 billion - is dedicated to the Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme. This makes the Programme the largest one from a financial point of view out of 16 other programmes to be implemented with Partner Countries to the East and South of EU’s external borders.
The Joint Monitoring Committee is a body composed of 14 Mediterranean countries: Algeria, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestine, Portugal, Spain and Tunisia – and it is responsible for designing the strategy and implementing modalities of the new ENI CBC “Mediterranean Sea Basin” Programme.
The new Programme is structured in two overarching objectives:
- promote economic and social development;
- address common challenges in environment.
These objectives are declined in four thematic objectives and eleven priorities. Among the priorities is “Renewable energy and energy efficiency” through which support is provided for cost-effective and innovative energy rehabilitations relevant to building types and climatic zones, with a focus on public buildings.
