We are proud to announce that we are the consortium partner of the EU funded “Town Twinning Between Turkey and the EU”.

There are certain results that are expected to be achieved after the implementation of this project:
Result 1: The capacity of key institutions for town twinning with the EU (MEUA, UMT, UPS and MoI) will be improved, and a road map will be prepared and published to give guidance for further structural improvements.
Resut 2: Relations with key partners in the EU and Turkey for town twinning will be sustained, including through strengthened networking structures.
Result 3: The capacity of Turkish local authorities will be improved in areas relevant for EU accession and best practices will be disseminated.
Result 4: The quantity and quality of town twinning involving Turkish local authorities will increase, including effective promotion and involvement of key stakeholders such as civil society and citizens at local level.
