About the Programme

The IPA II CBC Programme Bosnia and Herzegovina – Montenegro 2014 – 2020 is a territorial cooperation programme developed and implemented in the framework of the Enlargement Policy of the European Union. It stems from and continues a previous exercise carried out in the financial perspective 2007 – 2013. The programme area covers 30,367.33 km². The programme area in Bosnia and Herzegovina consists of 56 municipalities while the programme area in Montenegro consists of 14 municipalities. The overall programme objective is: The sustainable development in the cross-border area between Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro is promoted by the implementation of common actions based on an efficient use of the comparative advantages of the programme area. This objective has been translated into the following thematic priorities: –

  • TP1: Promoting employment, labour mobility and social and cultural inclusion across the border;
  • TP2: Protecting the environment, promoting climate change adaptation and mitigation, risk prevention and management;
  • TP3: Encouraging tourism and cultural and natural heritage.

The programme will thus contribute to achieving the goal of the South-East European 2020 (SEE 2020) and Europe 2020 strategy for “smart”, “sustainable”, “inclusive” and “integrated” growth and to the achievement of economic, social and territorial cohesion.

The total IPA funding for Bosnia and Herzegovina – Montenegro Programme 2014-2020 is EUR 8 400 000, at least EUR 7 560 000 of which will be allocated to CBC operations.
