Promoting Green Deal Readiness in the Eastern Partnership Countries (ProGRess)

The project supports the countries of the Eastern Partnership in their transition to climate-friendly economic development. It aims to improve the conditions for the transformation of EU trade-related agricultural and industrial value chains. The project promotes the introduction of innovative technologies, tools and methodologies that provide a significant impetus for a transition to greater sustainability, climate resilience and long-term greenhouse gas (mitigation in the region, accompanied by framework conditions that improve implementation and sectoral acceptance. Better access to financing options and support for the development of financing mechanisms and instruments involving for example national banks, development banks and public budgets will facilitate implementation. Good practices and expertise will be anchored in the institutional structures of the regional and national implementing partners.
