The European Neighbourhood Partnership Instrument (ENPI) provides Community assistance for the development of an area of prosperity and good relations between the EU and neighbouring countries.
ENPI aims to support measures within a wide range of areas for cooperation, which are defined in Article 2 of Regulation (EC) No. 1638/2006
establishing the ENPI.
Its budget for 2007-2013 is €12 billion, of which €1.18 billion is being invested in 15 crossborder cooperation programmes. These crossborder programmes aim to encourage cooperation between countries along the EU's external land and maritime borders.
The neighbouring countries participating in the ENPI are: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, Palestinian Authority of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Russian Federation, Syria, Tunisia and the Ukraine. These are referred to as Partner Countries.
ENPI was set up on 1st January 2007, merging the MEDA, TACIS and other programmes into one more flexible and policy-driven instrument which focuses on sustainable development and the approximation of EU policies and standards in neighbouring Countries.
ENPI is the financial instrument of the European Neighbourhood Policy
. It complements the multilateral Barcelona Process, which continues to be a key element of EU relations with the Mediterranean countries.
