Who finances the Program?

The Program is financed through a multi-donor trust fund managed by the World Bank, with a contribution of €9.5 million provided by the government of Austria in two tranches (Phase 1 and 2). Activities supported by the Program have leveraged an additional €2.5 million, including €900,000 from the Open Regional Fund (ORF) for Southeast Europe (GIZ and Swiss Cooperation) and close to €600,000 from direct beneficiaries, and discussions to engage more funding sources are on-going.
