This portal is one of the main communication tools of the ENPI Information and Communication Support Project, launched by the European Commission in January 2009 to make more known the relationship between the EU and its Neighbours in the Mediterranean and in the East. The project runs until January 2015. It is funded by the directorate Development and Cooperation – EuropeAid which manages EU external aid programmes and is charged with turning political decisions into actions benefiting the partner countries and its citizens on the ground.
It is financed under the Regional Communication Programme. The Project seeks to increase knowledge and raise awareness and understanding of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation on the one hand, and the Eastern Partnership on the other.
The Project gives special emphasis to the cooperation activities supported by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), the financial instrument through which decisions taken within the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) are implemented.
