Project principles

  • Focus on concrete achievements on implementing the RTAP in a realistic manner, placing accession to main UN Road Transport Agreements as the main target, with a view to promote harmonized transport regulations in the region, putting emphasis on regional context, as well as in road safety, while avoiding duplication of work done by other relevant initiatives and actions
  • Optimized use of available resources, enhancing the project’s efficiency
  • Sustainability of the project results is among the main principles of action for the projects as a key parameter for its overall success, but also the main benefit for the Partner countries. It is of paramount importance that the achievements of the project are fully exploited by the Partner Countries and that any duplication of future work is avoided. In this regard, efforts are concentrating into ensuring that project results and activities continue existing and functioning beyond the end of the project making its results widely spread, used and exploited continuously
  • Evolutive work programme responding to Partner Counties Priorities: Though it is essential to ensure that the tasks pursue the defined objectives of the Project within the available resources, flexibility when defining the work plan allows the Partner countries expectations to be reflected in the project activities
  • Annual workplans elaborated jointly with Partner Countries: the project is implemented on the basis of annual work plans of activities, developed by the project Team in close cooperation with the EuroMed National Coordinators and approved by the Contracting Authority
  • Ownership and Commitment from partner countries: The High-level Forum on Aid Effectiveness (Paris, March 2005) emphasized the importance not only of policy coherence and enhanced donor collaboration, but also of increased ownership. Studies have consistently demonstrated that when beneficiaries have strong sense of ownership of programmes, the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of external assistance are increased. Partner countries’ ownership is of paramount importance in this project.
  • Involving all countries and key stakeholders, ensuring that all countries benefit from the project and no countries are left behind
  • Contribute to the Midterm review of the RTAP in 2017 and Support UfM, the Forum and its Working Group
