EEA&Norway GRANTS Local Development Programme • Bilateral Relations

Strengthening bilateral relations between Donor States and Beneficiary States is a major objective of the EEA and Norwegian Grants 2014-2021 and therefore of the "Local Development and Poverty Reduction, Enhanced Roma Inclusion" Programme. In this respect, the Programme encourages and provides support to entities in Romania and Donor States acting in the Programme areas in order to meet, share information and experiences, discuss/ agree about future cooperation, establish partnerships and develop donor partnership projects to be financed under the Programme.

Cooperation between entities in Romania and entities from Donor States are encouraged and facilitated in order to make possible transfer of knowledge, experiences and best practices necessary in the preparation, implementation and sustainability of projects and, thus, on short term, to improve the implementation and results of the projects financed under the Programme and, on long term, to strengthen bilateral relations between the Donor States and Romania.


Bilateral initiatives of the predefined projects proposed to be financed through the

"Local Development" Programme

In July 2018, RSDF launched a funding facility for promoters and project partners who will be involved in implemention of the pre-defined projects financed under the Local Development Programme. Through this, the RSDF provided financial support for the development of the bilateral partnership and for the elaboration of the financing request related to the predefined project.
