Its members are: the two French regions of Nouvelle-Aquitaine and Occitanie; the four Spanish Autonomous Communities of Aragon, Catalonia, Basque Country and Navarre; and the Principality of Andorra.

The CTP was made a consortium in 2005 and with this status became the Managing Authority of the Operational Programme for Territorial Cooperation Spain-France-Andorra (Interreg IV-A - POCTEFA), which between 2014 and 2020 managed a fund of more than 190 million euros, with projects in which Navarre participated accounting for more than 20 million. The Government of Navarre is a member of the Programming and Monitoring Committees for this operational programme. The Directorate for External Action has developed the Navarrefa initiative, a forum for information, capitalisation and networking around the POCTEFA programme in Navarre.
