Funding at a glance

The focus for inland waterway transport (IWT) funding in Bulgaria currently lies on infrastructure investments supported by the EU’s pre-accession financial instruments, the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund. Other sources of financing are loans from the European Investment Bank and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Priority projects in the framework of the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) are waterway infrastructure improvement and the establishment of River Information Services (RIS) on the Bulgarian stretch of the Danube in line with the EU’s RIS Directive.

At present, no specific national funding programmes for the IWT sector are available in Bulgaria.
