Carpathian Project - Protection and Sustainable Development of the Carpathians in a Transnational Framework

Duration: 2005 - 2008


Cooperation with the EU Strategy for the Danube Region

The Carpathian Convention is closely cooperating with the EU Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG Regio) in mainstreaming and profiling mountains at EU level, both in the macro-regional strategies and through new possible initiatives, whose final aim will be the possibility to develop a "Mountain Agenda" for Europe.

Within this cooperation, an Expert Workshop on "Mountain Dimension in the Danube Region, the case of Carpathians. Challenges and Opportunities for Regional Cooperation in Mountain Areas", was held in Brussels on 25 November 2015.
As a follow up to the meeting, a Joint Synergy Paper between the Carpathian Convention and the relevant Priority

Areas (PAs) of the European Strategy for Danube Region (EUSDR) was developed. Related to this, different Memoranda of Cooperation between the Carpathian Convention and the EUSDR Priority Areas has been signed:

Some EUSDR PAs decided to launch a written procedure for its signature, while with other PAs, the Carpathian Convention is still at an earlier stage of mutual consultation.

The Memoranda will facilitate the coordination with the specific PAs and possible support to Carpathian related activities.
