EUR 57 million package to reinforce regional co-operation with Mediterranean countries
Funded under the MED Regional Programme, the activities will encourage co-operation and dialogue between the 27 Euro-Mediterranean Partners in areas such as the Middle East Peace Process, training of civil servants, water information systems, the South-South free trade area (Agadir Process), investment facilities and cultural heritage. The Middle East Peace Projects (MEPP) 2003 (€ 10 million) will be a direct follow-up of the previous MEPP frameworks. They are to provide funding for the strengthening of civil societies in the Middle East, for enhancing peace initiatives on both the Israeli and Palestinian/Arab side, and to promote and explore ideas for a peaceful solution to the conflict.
The Training of Public Administration programme (€ 6 million) will support the training of over 400 experts from public administrations in the Mediterranean Partners, and help set up a network of training institutes oriented towards public administrations. The training will also address EU related matters.
The support fund to the Facility for Euro-Mediterranean Investment and Partnership (FEMIP), (€25 million) is designed to fund technical assistance activities complementing the European Investment Bank investment operations from identification to implementation, such as feasibility and other studies, training, monitoring, and advisory activities. € 19 million will benefit Mediterranean Partners other than Turkey and the remaining € 6 million has been earmarked for Turkey.
The Euro-Mediterranean Water Information System project (EMWIS/SEMIDE) (€ 2 million), which started in 1999, will be continued for a further 3 year period, focusing on assisting the Mediterranean Partners to organise their internal water information systems (intranet). It will be co-financed by France, Italy, and Spain.
The project Support to the Implementation of the South-South Sub-regional Free Trade Area of Agadir (€ 4 million), aims to assist the countries concerned (Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, and Tunisia) in the areas of customs and sectoral studies, and to achieve their common organisational structure, as well as to raise awareness on the benefits of the Free Trade Area.
Euromed Heritage III (€ 10 million), is designed to promote heritage common to both shores of the Mediterranean as a tool for policies of tolerance, peace and stability. The programme will support 4 projects selected under the Euromed Heritage II Call for Proposals , and aimed at increasing the Mediterranean Partners' capacity in managing and enhancing their own heritage.
