Annual Assembly of the EaP CSF

The 12th Annual Assembly – “EaP beyond 2020: renewing commitments to rights, security, and the green agenda“, will be held online on December 7-10, 2020, bringing together more than 300 CSOs and EaP and EU decision-makers to explore the contours of the EaP policy beyond 2020. Against the backdrop of the recently finished war in Nagorno-Karabakh, a severe political crisis in Belarus, and a number of important elections that have taken place in Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine this event will focus on our shared aspiration for a truly multi-stakeholder engagement with empowered civil society at the core of the EaP policy to deliver meaningful results for people.

EaP CSF COVID-19 Re-granting

 The EaP CSF’s COVID-19 re-granting will support 23 member organisations from the Eastern Partnership region to help realise projects aimed at mitigating the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Out of 81 submitted proposals, 23 were selected. 13 proposals were selected for the emergency fund, and 10 for the adjustment fund. The highest number of projects was selected from Armenia with 5, followed by Belarus, Georgia and Moldova with 4, and Azerbaijan and Ukraine with 3. The projects will be directed towards addressing the needs of vulnerable populations, or towards helping EaP CSF members to adapt their activities to the challenging situation.
