EU Project Pipeline for ADR (Kocmur)

  1. 1. Preparing the ground for EU funds: Creating a pipeline of project ideas for Croatia’s less developed areas Zagreb, January 20, 2014
  2. 2. 1. The context 2. About the project
  3. 3. The context • UNDP Croatia Local Development programme present in the most underdeveloped counties for 8 years – over 400 different projects implemented • Aware of the problems in accessing pre-accession funding at local level – may multiply when accessing Structural and Investment Funds • Anticipate the problems that the Government will face – systemic, staff, financing, capacity to plan (integrated approach!) and implement at local and regional level • the niche – where UNDP can actually make a difference with its own resources
  4. 4. The Project Background info: • Started in August 2013 • Duration: 15 months • 3 counties (underdeveloped) • Focus on ERDF, other Funds to be considered in an “integrated” approach • Total budget: USD 600,000 (1/3 UNDP, 2/3 Government) • UNDP’s existing LD team + close co-operation with County development agencies + synegy with other UNDP Croatiaportfolios: Green and Social inclusion + outsourcing only when necessary
  5. 5. The Project Activities: • individual meetings with all possible stakeholders from all sectors → assessment of the existing project ideas and proposals • Analysis of the existing strategic and programming documents → setting the framework: developing more precise “strategic guidelines” • Information workshops – general and specific → developing new ideas • “Project clinics” → shaping the new ideas into projects
  6. 6. The Project Outputs: • “Strategic guidelines” for programming the Structural and investment funds for each of the 3 counties • A catalogue of at least 2 bigger projects with regional impact (> 3m€) and 3 “packages” of at least 5 smaller projects per county • Pre-feasibility studies and basic project documentation for projects with regional impact • Documented methodology of work + templates
  7. 7. The Project Early results – examples of project ideas that need further development: • Lika-Senj county: 4 nature and national parks → a “package” of projects that should create more benefits for the local community: community infrastructure, upgrading tourism infrastructure and offer, branding and marketing of local products, etc.. • Sisak-Moslavina county: Energy efficiency measures in public buildings; Commercial and community utilization of thermal water springs; etc.. • Karlovac county: Innovation centre for metal processing industry; Kupa river basin tourism potentials; etc..
