The EU programme of financial assistance supports Kosovo’s ambitious reform agenda. More than 280 EU-funded projects managed by the EU Office are currently being carried out across a wide-range of sectors, regions and cities in Kosovo. The EU assistance is focused on fulfilment of the EU political criteria, including strengthening the rule of law and support for public administration reform, the communities, culture, media and the youth and sports; on wider socio-economic issues, including trade and regional development, education and employment, support for the tax administration and agriculture; on capacity building, the approximation of legislation and flanking measures on European standards, as identified in the European Partnership, including support for the environment, transport and energy. EU funding for projects in Kosovo is provided in the form of grants and contracts.
