EU COMMISSION IS TO FUND ANOTHER PROJECT FOR NORTH CYPRUS

Postby halil » Thu Oct 30, 2008 8:40 pm

A contract was signed between the European Commission and an Italian Company to launch a project aimed at supporting crop production in North Cyprus.
The project is expected to be completed by 2011 and will be funded under the EU Financial Assistance Regulation for Turkish Cypriots.

The project, which is worth over 1.9 million Euros, primarily aims to improve the efficiency of water use in the agricultural sector as well as to increase the market value of agricultural products.
A launching ceremony was held at the EU Programme Support Office in Nicosia (Lefkosa )this evening, for the project.

VEIZZER SAYS PROJECT AIMED AT INCREASING EFFICIENCY IN WATER USE IN AGRICULTURE SECTOR

The project, which is worth over 1.9 million Euros, primarily aims to improve the efficiency of water use in the agricultural sector as well as to increase the market value of agricultural products.

Speaking at the reception, the EU’s Financial Assistance Coordinator Alexandra Viezzer explained how preparations on the ‘Organic Production Project’, one of the most important legs of the Crop Production Project was completed following two years of drought in North Cyprus.

Viezzer explained that the project envisaged the efficient use of water in the agricultural security so as to minimize the negative effects of drought.

Pointing out that the EU was eager to reach out to as many farmers and producers within the framework of its training program, the EU’s financial Assistance coordinator said that farmers and producers should not be shy in getting in contact with EU experts for the implementation of the project.

I'll inform the idiot who has taken our orange crops in Nikitas not to be shy and to ask for help in order to get that plantation back on its feet again. Maybe he can send us an orange every now and then. :roll:

NICOSIA TURKISH MINICIPALITY AND EU SIGN COOPERATION PROTOCOL TO RENEW WATER PIPES

The Nicosia Municipality and the European Union Commission Support office have signed a cooperation protocol.

It envisages the replacement of asbestos cement water pipes in the capital Lefkosa.(North Nİcosia)

This is the a project that is being financed by the EU aid programme for the Turkish Cypriot community.

The water pipes to be replaced are mainly made from asbestos cement and are in poor condition leading to possible health hazards as well as up to 60% losses through leaks.

The project foresees replacement of the main pipes as well as the replacement of house connections and domestic water meters.

The new installations will meet EU standards.

The 259 million Euro EU aid programme for the Turkish Cypriot community is managed by the European Commission.

Upgrading of infrastructure to EU standards is a major component of the programme, particularly in the area of water distribution and waste water collection and treatment.

And herein lies the difference. Member states of the EU will receive funding for projects and manage them accordingly via the correct govt dept. In this case however the EU COmmisison needs to manage this personally due to the area of investment being a millitarilly occupied area with no legal govt.
