Transition Assistance and Institution Building

It is delivered through annual national and multi-beneficiary programmes.

The purpose of support under the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA) programme is to help candidate and potential candidate countries and territories – the Beneficiaries – to progress towards fully meeting the Copenhagen political and economic criteria as well as adopting and implementing the EU acquis. The Multi-beneficiary actions will complement and add value to the support given under the National Programmes.

Cross-Border Co-operation

The other part of the assistance (Component II) supports cross-border cooperation activities between Bosnia and Herzegovina and EU member states as well as with candidate and potential candidate countries.
