Citizen’s Summary sums up useful information about the programme and annual implementation reports. While the programme is described in detail in the Cooperation programme and Programme Manual, annual implementation reports provide key information on the implementation of the programme and its priorities, describing the activities carried out, as well as explaining the financial figures and indicators met.
