Thematic framework

Based on inputs from stakeholders and experts, the Programme Preparation Group has adopted four thematic priorities. Each of these covers one to three specific objectives. 

As part of the framework, three spotlight themes are identified. These are additional dimensions of special importance in the region and apply across all four priorities. However, spotlight themes may not be relevant for all projects. 

If you consider applying for funding in the new programme, please ensure you are familiar with the thematic framework including priorities, specific objectives, and spotlight themes.
