ENPI applies to the EU's immediate neighbours by land or sea: Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Moldova, Morocco, the Palestinian Authority, Syria, Tunisia and Ukraine. Relations between EU and Russia are defined as a Strategic Partnership covering four “common spaces”.


EC assistance under ENPI will be implemented through different types of programmes:

  • National programmes for each partner country;
  • Three Regional programmes: one for the East, one for the South and one trans-regional for both East and South;
  • Fifteen Cross-border Cooperation programmes;
  • Five thematic programmes. They are common to neighbouring countries and development countries (ACP, ALA..).
