The Council of Europe (CoE) Action Plan for the Republic of Moldova 2017-2020 was adopted by the Committee of Ministers in February 2017. The Action Plan has been developed as a strategic co-operation framework to support key national reforms and ultimately bring the country's legislative and regulatory frameworks, institutions and practice further in line with European standards. The Action Plan is well-aligned with national strategies and policy documents such as the National Development Strategy “Moldova 2020”, the National Public Administratin Reform Strategy 2016-2020, the National Decentralisation Strategy and other sectorial strategies.

CoE interventions target multiple  sectors and policy areas including the functioning of democratic institutions with a particular focus on constitutional reform and elections, the fight against corruption, support to the justice sector reform, assistance to national human rights institutions, combatting ill-treatment and impunity, combatting trafficking in human beings, freedom and pluralism of media, education for democratic citizenship, local democracy and decentralisation as well as Confidence Building Measures across the Dnistru river.

CoE country-specific programmes in the Republic of Moldova are implemented alongside a number of regional joint programmes with the EU in the framework of the Partnership for Good Governance (PGG). PGG actions are geared towards enhancing judicial reform, supporting free and fair elections, combatting corruption as well as cybercrime.

The Action Plan consists of a total of 17 country-specific and regional/multilateral areas of intervention with an overall financial volume of almost 18 million Euros.
