Montenegro - financial assistance

Montenegro - financial assistance

  • Funding allocation for 2013: €34.6 million
  • Montenegro has access to:
    • IPA Component I (Transition Assistance and Institution Building)
    • IPA Component II (Cross-Border Cooperation)
    • IPA Component III (Regional Development)
    • IPA Component IV (Human Resource Development)
    • IPA Component V (Rural Development).

This assistance is managed by the EU Delegation in Montenegro.
As a candidate country, Montenegro will be able to implement programmes under Components III to V when the country receives accreditation to manage assistance itself (under the Decentralised Implementation System).

  • EU assistance focuses on:
    • Justice/home affairs – independent, efficient and accountable judiciary to fight corruption and organised crime.
    • Public administration reform – professional and de-politicised administration.
    • Environment/climate change – helping the country fully align with EU standards.
    • Agriculture/rural development – competitive and sustainable producers, better prepared for the implementation of the common agricultural policy (CAP) and EU standards (food, sanitary, phytosanitary).

Transition Assistance and Institution Building

One part of the assistance (Component I) focuses on implementing the main priorities of the European partnership. In particular it involves investment and measures aiming at institution building, as well as transition and stabilisation measures still necessary in the Western Balkans. 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 Montenegro and EU member states as well as with candidate and potential candidate countries. It may also help Montenegro participate in Structural Funds' trans-national co-operation programmes under the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument.
