Programme's follow-up

Beyond 2007 Neighbourhood Programmes will operate in the framework of the European Neighbourhood Policy adding to an improved cross-border cooperation with countries along the EU’s external land and maritime borders and giving substance to EU's aim of avoiding new dividing lines.

The ENPI will continue to support cross-border contacts and co-operation between local and regional actors and civil society. The ENPI cross-border cooperation (CBC) programme will cover activities across the EU's external borders in the East and the South, with programmes for the period 2007-2013 receiving financial support of €1.18 billion. A summary of the Commission approach can be found in the ENPI Cross-Border Cooperation Strategy Paper (download - 1.2 MB).
