The activities are supporting national efforts to increase the country’s cyber and information security through the establishment of a robust cyber security infrastructure.

In a second component, the actions strengthen the Republic of Moldova’s resilience against disinformation by providing support to independent media and to the Audiovisual Council of the Republic of Moldova, as well as by fostering direct responses to disinformation.

A third component provides assistance to government authorities to ensure the inclusive hosting of refugees from Ukraine, with a specific focus on strengthening the resilience of host-communities and the relevant authorities to mitigate deterioration in access to basic services linked to the refugee inflow. This component is implemented in close coordination with planned humanitarian and development cooperation assistance.
