Belarus support programme
The support programme is aimed at initiatives in Belarus civil society. It supports projects cooperatively conceptualised and realised by partners from Belarus and Germany.
The projects are oriented toward the focus points
- Non-formal education
- Health and social affairs
- Environment and energy
- Sustainable regional development.
In parallel to supporting projects, countrywide programmes for the networking of NGOs and for supporting the dialogue with the respective national authorities take place. The acceptance of NGOs increases, and the organisations are taken seriously as partners by the authorities.
The Belarus support programme exists since 2002 and is regularly evaluated by the „Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit“ (Society for International Cooperation). The IBB realises the programme on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
