About this website
This website has been created to respond to the problems faced by development operators in accessing and implementing EC-funded development projects. All information comes from official documentation published by the European Commission and its Cooperation Office - EuropeAid - specifically, except for the section Documents┬╗Toolkits (top menu) where you can find useful material and links from different sources and working tools developed by punto.sud.

The main aim of this service is to facilitate the relationship between EuropeAid and its development partners by helping the latter find the correct information to adopt a common language and set of quality standards compatible with the EC requirements. The portal targets all development organisations, field workers, and other related actors involved in the management of EC-awarded grants: it aims at promoting the ultimate provision of timely, relevant, independent and accountable project realisations.

At the time of issue, we have tried to ensure that the content of this website - and the documents contained herein - be correct. If you identify any error or omission, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Please note the information provided in this website only refers to the financial perspective 2014-2020 of the EU General Budget and to the 11th EDF.

The website has been specifically designed for the management of EuropeAid-funded projects by Non-State Actors and Local Authorities.
