Grants for micro-projects of Cypriot NGOs, and scholarships for applicants from developing countries to study in Cyprus

Principal Office: Cyprus

The Cyprus Planning Bureau is the administrator of the country’s development cooperation through CyprusAid.

The aid program in Cyprus began in 2005. Cyprus does not currently have a mechanism for project implementation on the ground. Thus it implements its projects of bilateral development in collaboration other European development agencies, and with international organizations (i.e., mainly the United Nations agencies).

Program areas at CyprusAid include infrastructure development and environment (i.e., climate change, dams, sewage systems, irrigation systems, forest management, solar energy, etc.) — among others.
