EU Support to Strengthening IBM in Ukraine (EU4IBM)

Project Description
The project supports the identification of, and assists in addressing the gaps in the implementation of the national reforms approximating the Ukrainian border management system to the standards and best practices of the EU Integrated Border Management (IBM) in line with the national IBM Strategy of Ukraine adopted on 24 July 2019.
