The sustainable social development of South East Europe is crucial not only for the political and social stability of the region, but for the entire European Union. The objective of this event is to present, assess and mutually learn from the diverse experiences of the donors and implementers of EU and bilateral projects, notably those under the umbrella of the EU’s Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) and the transition policy and development cooperation of the Czech government. The ultimate goal of the event is to find synergies between the European and Czech instruments in this context.
