Main objectives

The overall objective of the Black Sea Basin ENI CBC programme is "to improve the welfare of the people in the Black Sea Basin regions through sustainable growth and joint environmental protection".

In doing so, the Programme will pursue two of the ENI CBC overarching strategic objectives:

  • Promote economic and social development in regions on both sides of common borders
  • Address common challenges in environment, public health, safety and security

Expected results

  • Stronger cross-border business opportunities in the tourism and cultural sectors in Black Sea Basin

  • Increased cross-border links for trade and modernisation in the agricultural and connected sectors in Black Sea Basin

  • Improved availability of cross-border compatible environmental monitoring data and information within Black Sea Basin

  • Increased awareness on environmental challenges and good waste management practices related to river and marine litter within Black Sea Basin

Indicative Actions

  • Promote the development and joint marketing of cross-border tourism products and transnational thematic itineraries (e.g. cultural, religious, ancient trade routes, agricultural); promote diversification and integration of coastal and inland tourism.

  • Promotion of international trade links, sectoral and cross-sectoral networks and partnerships (e.g. business forums) within the Black Sea Basin and support to internationalisation of exchanges (e.g. capacity building).

  • Jointly raise public awareness and education regarding river and marine litter problems, the value of biodiversity and environmental protection (mass-media campaigns, production of education tools and ‘responsible-citizenship’ guidelines for different sectors for target audiences such as children and students, tourists, municipal authorities, shipping companies and shipping crews).
