Programme description

Main objectives

The Cooperation programme addresses some of the important cross-border challenges which are linked to the implementation of Europe 2020 in the border regions of Southern Estonia and Northern Latvia.

A strong focus of the programme is on environmental measures. The programme will support natural and cultural heritage in order to further develop sustainable tourism in the region, and will support the promotion of more environment-friendly behaviour of the population (energy saving, recycling, more careful use of water).

The cooperation programme will promote entrepreneurship, facilitate the economic exploitation of new ideas and foster the creation of new firms. It will also help SMEs to engage in innovation processes, and will support cross-border labour mobility. It will also help to create a better network of small harbours.

The programme will contribute to the implementation of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.
