Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund
The Eastern Partnership Technical Assistance Trust Fund (EPTATF) was established in 2010 to finance technical assistance operations in Eastern Partnership countries. Priority areas include private sector development, social and economic infrastructure development and climate change mitigation and adaptation. The trust fund also provides support for capacity-building programmes, such as training in beneficiary countries and grants for institutional programmes.
118,000 people employed in construction each year
Safe drinking water for over 66,700 people
More than 2.4 million people with improved connectivity, energy efficiency and secure energy supply
Donor-financed operations make a direct contribution to several of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These are some of the global goals targeted by our trust funds. Our collective actions unlock billions of euros in investment to combat climate change, eradicate poverty and fight inequality.
The EIB uses donor funds to enhance the development impact of investment projects. EPTATF supports technical assistance for projects, including upstream studies, capacity building, secondment and internship programmes and dissemination activities.
Countries eligible for EPTATF funding:
Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
