Annual Action Programmes (AAP) are financing decisions adopted by the European Commission, to reserve funds for regional and country-based external cooperation programmes and for the implementation of thematic programmes. AAPs specify the objectives pursued, the fields of intervention, the expected results, the management procedures and total amount of financing planned.
