In April 2014, the European Union (EU) and the Council of Europe (CoE) agreed in a Statement of Intent that targeted cooperation activities with Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus - the EU’s Eastern Partnership countries - would be implemented under a ‘Programmatic Cooperation Framework’ (PCF) - renamed the Partnership for Good Governance (PGG) in June 2017.
These cooperation activities will strengthen the capacity of Eastern Partnership countries, which are member States of the Council of Europe with the exception of Belarus; to implement domestic reforms to bring them closer to the standards of the Council of Europe and the European Union in the fields of human rights, democracy and the rule of law.
The budget (2015-2018) is €36 million. The PGG is funded 85% by the European Union and 15% by the Council of Europe. It is implemented by the Council of Europe.
Five priority areas (or “themes”) of cooperation were identified with the European Union for the PGG. Under these five themes there are 15 sub-themes which lead to 50 country-specific and regional actions.
Protection and promotion of human rights
Combating threats to the rule of law
Addressing challenges of the information society
Promoting democratic governance
