CHISINAU, 08 May 2015 -
On Sunday 10 May, in Piața Marii Adunări Naționale in Chişinău, visitors of the European Village will have the opportunity to interact, play and learn more about a varied range of EU-funded projects carried out by agencies of the United Nations in Moldova.
In Moldova, the European Union and the United Nations work together to help the Republic of Moldova achieve its development priorities. This cooperation reflects a broad global relationship between the European Union and the United Nations on issues ranging from development to climate change, human rights, the fight against corruption and crime, and global health concerns such as AIDS/HIV.
As a result of this cooperation a diversified set of programmes and projects, funded by the European Union and implemented by the United Nations, are now benefitting people and communities in Moldova. Ten of these are going to be on display on Sunday in the European Village organized by the Delegation of the European Union to Moldova:
