Albania-Macedonia Cross Border Programme

The cross-border programme between the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Albania
is implemented during the period of 2007-2013. The global objective of the cross-border programme is promoting sustainable development in the cross-border area

Joint actions and cross-border projects implemented within the programme should have an impact on the social and economic situation of the population, improve the joint management and valorisation of natural and cultural resources and strengthen the image and the cohesion of the cross-border region and sub-regions.

Three specific objectives have been defined:

·         Specific objective 1: to support the establishment of joint actions and strategies aiming at protecting and valorizing the natural resources of the region.

·         Specific objective 2: to foster sustainable economic development of the region.

·         Specific objective 3 is a transversal objective: to develop long term partnerships and networking between civil society organizations (NGOs, sport organizations, etc), professional organizations (i.e. Chambers of Commerce, entrepreneurs and farmers’ organizations) and decentralized institutions, particularly schools and faculties, including research and development units
