The programme contributes to strengthening relations between Latvia and Russia and promoting enhanced political cooperation and progressive economic integration. The strategic goal of the programme is to support joint efforts for addressing cross border development challenges and promoting sustainable use of existing potential of the area across the border between Latvia and Russia.
The programme aims to reach positive changes in entrepreneurship, environmental and cross border mobility sectors. The promotion of local “people to people” actions is an important modality to be deployed in support of any of the programme priorities. This could include support for enhanced cooperation among local and regional authorities, NGOs and other civil society groups, universities and schools, chambers of commerce etc.
The programme will contribute to the above by focusing on three themes:
- Business and SME development
- Environmental protection, climate change mitigation and adaptation
- Promotion of border management and border security, mobility and migration management.
