Programme loans (“PL”) represent envelopes under which the Implementing Partner then can add sub-projects. The PL is published when the first sub-project is signed (see link above). The field “Project locations” references the possible geographical location of sub-projects that can be signed under the PL. It does not mean that for each of the Member State listed a signed sub-project exists.
