1. The Black Sea Synergy is part of the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) of the EU and is intended as a flexible framework complementing existing EU policy, seeking to tackle the significant opportunities and challenges in the Black Sea area that require coordinated action at the regional level in the sectors such as energy, transport, environment, migration and security. In the field of migration and security enhanced cooperation at border security increases the security at regional level and helps to fight organised cross-border crime such as trafficking in human beings, and to prevent irregular migration.
2. A conference between EU and Black Sea Foreign Affairs Ministers in Kiev (Ukraine) in 2008 initiated the synergy.
