EU-UNDP Cyprus Partnership marks 20 years

The longstanding partnership between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Cyprus marks a significant milestone as it celebrates 20 years of collaboration globally and over two decades in Cyprus.


The Directorate-General for Structural Reform Support (DG REFORM) coordinates and provides tailor-made technical support to EU Member States, in cooperation with the relevant Commission services. The support is primarily provided through the Technical Support Instrument (TSI). The goal is to support Member States’ efforts to design and implement resilience-enhancing reforms, thereby contributing to the EU’s recovery from the COVID-19 crisis, improving the quality of public services and getting back on the path of sustainable and inclusive growth.

In addition, DG REFORM coordinates the Commission's efforts to support the process led by the United Nations for the reunification of Cyprus. DG REFORM is also responsible for the implementation of the EU Aid Programme for the Turkish Cypriot community and for monitoring the Green Line Regulation.

Furthermore, DG REFORM is the Commission’s lead service for the broad and crosscutting topic of public administration and governance. The DG coordinates the implementation of the Commission’s actions for Enhancing the European Administrative Space, in response to the the challenges they face. The Expert Group on Public Administration and Governance is a platform to facilitate the dialogue between the Commission and representatives of the Member States.

The Commission’s Quality Administration Toolbox provides a reference and resource by pointing readers to existing EU policies and international practices in the field of public administration and governance.
