Pillar 4 - Strengthening the region
This pillar contributes substantially to achieving the European Cohesion Policy objectives.
Specifically, it contributes to
· A smarter Europe by supporting institutional capacity building (PA 10).
· A Europe closer to the citizens by supporting participative governance (PA 10).
Further this pillar is crucial in supporting at least two new strategic objectives of the EUSDR:
· Stimulating Sustainable Development
· Enhancing Democracy, sound administration and strong involvement of Civil Society and Youth
