Twinning projects

In Latvia the administration of Twinning projects financed under European Union PHARE funds was launched by the European Commission in 1998. The main idea of Twinning projects is to strengthen institutional capacity of public administration working in close co-operation with experts from EU Member States establishing partnership between different countries.

The main goal is to provide effective implementation of acquis communautaire in the new EU Member States.

As of 2004, taking into consideration the necessity to arrange the state administration executive of the new Member States, Twinning projects are supported and financed in the framework of the EU program Transition Facility.

Twinning projects are divided into Twinning and Twinning Light projects:

  • Twinning projects are foreseen for dealing with state priority, administrative and legislation issues of greater scale; and the implementation period of the project is at least 12 months;
  • Twinning Light projects are small scale projects directed to solving of definite and specific problems; and the implementation of project doesn’t exceed 8 months.

After Latvia’s accession to the EU, the state administration institutions of Latvia have a possibility to participate in Twinning and Twinning Light projects as co-operation partners.
