The European Union's Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) is one of the macro-regional strategies set up by the European Commission (EC) to address common challenges and encourage cooperation between regions from different countries in Europe.
Following a request from the European Council, the Strategy was proposed by the European Commission in June 2014, incorporating the previous Maritime Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Seas. It was adopted by the Council of the European Union in September. It was eventually endorsed by the European Council in October. This Strategy was jointly developed by the EC, together with the countries and stakeholders in the region. It seeks to create synergies and coordination between existing policies and initiatives taking place across the area.
