The 2007-2013 ENPI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme is a multilateral CrossBorder Cooperation initiative funded by the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI). The Programme objective is to promote the sustainable and harmonious cooperation process at the Mediterranean Basin level by dealing with he common challenges and enhancing its endogenous potential. It finances cooperation projects as a contribution to the economic, social, environmental and cultural development of the Mediterranean region. The following 14 countries participate in the Programme: Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Malta, Palestinian Authority, Portugal, Spain, Syria, Tunisia. The Joint Managing Authority (JMA) is the Autonomous Region of Sardinia (Italy). Official Programme languages are Arabic, English, French and Greek.

Launched in May 2011, the strategic call focused six topics chosen by the Joint Monitoring Committee based on their potential for the development of cooperation in the Mediterranean area. These are: agro-food industry, sustainable tourism, integrated coastal zone management, water management, waste treatment and recycling, solar energy. Out of 300 proposals presented, 19 projects were approved for funding. Total value of these operations is € 82.5 million (€ 74.1 million ENPI contribution). Valorisation of typical dairy products, innovative multimedia services for tourism, diffusion of concentrated-solar technologies are some of the key issues of the running strategic projects.

The European Union is made up of 28 Member States who have decided to gradually link together their know-how, resources and destinies. Together, during a period of enlargement of 50 years, they have built a zone of stability, democracy and sustainable development whilst maintaining cultural diversity, tolerance and individual freedoms. The European Union is committed to sharing its achievements and its values with countries and peoples beyond its borders.
