Dear Mr Luciani,

Thank you for sending us your postal address. We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered today 24 September 2020 under reference number GESTDEM 2020/5685.

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on 15 October 2020. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via a private third-party website, which has no link with any institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running AsktheEU.org website is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the Commission. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third party’s privacy policy.

We understand that the third party running the AsktheEU.org website usually publishes the content of applicants’ correspondence with the Commission on that website. This includes the personal data that you may have communicated to the Commission (e.g. your private postal address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish that your correspondence with the Commission is published on a private third-party website such as AsktheEU.org, you can provide us with an alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence. In that case, the Commission will send all future electronic correspondence addressed to you only to that private address, and it will use only that private address to reply to your request. You should still remain responsible to inform the private third-party website about this change of how you wish to communicate with, and receive a reply from, the Commission.

Dear Ms Luciani,

 

We refer to your application dated 23 September 2020, registered on 24
September under the above-mentioned reference number, in which you make a
request for access to:

 

-          The details of the programmes (spending, projects,
beneficiaries, etc.) set up in Azerbaijan between 2013 and 2020, as part
of the EIDHR

-          The Compendium between 2013 and 2020 of the EIDHR

-          The Annual Action Programs of the EIDHR (in Azerbaijan)

-          The Calls for Proposals of the EIDHR in Azerbaijan

-          List of EIDHR non-confidential projects 2013-2020

 

Regarding the first indent of your request, all non-confidential data
including details of projects, is directly available on [1]EU Aid
Explorer. To identify European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights
(EIDHR) projects, you can use relevant sector codes such as human rights,
elections, democratic participation and civil society, gender etc.

 

In respect of the second indent of your request, please note that there is
no ‘compendium’ for EIDHR. Nevertheless, here are links to the most
important and recent programming documents, and the most recent evaluation
of EIDHR:

 

-          [2]EIDHR Regulation: Regulation (EC) No 1889/2006 of the
European Parliament and of the Council of 20 December 2006 on establishing
a financing instrument for the promotion of democracy and human rights
worldwide;

-          [3]Current EIDHR Regulation: Regulation (EU) No 235/2014 of the
European Parliament and of the Council of 11 March 2014 establishing a
financing instrument for democracy and human rights worldwide;

-          [4]EIDHR Multiannual Indicative Programme 2014-2017;

-          [5]EIDHR Multiannual Action Programme 2016-2017;

-          [6]2017 Mid-term review of EIDHR;

-          [7]EIDHR Multiannual Indicative Programme 2018-2020;

-          [8]EIDHR Multiannual Action Programme 2018-2020.

 

Annual Action Programmes, to which you refer in the third indent of your
request, do not exist for EIDHR on country level. Country-specific
interventions are mostly planned under the Country-Based Support Schemes
and the annual global calls for proposals, covered by the financing
decision on the Multi-Annual Action Programme.

 

Finally, all relevant information on EIDHR calls for proposals is
available in the [9]Commission’s website for calls for proposals and
tenders.

 

 

Yours faithfully,
