NGO coalition statement on the future Cohesion Policy post-2013
Policy comments | 31 January 2011
On the occasion of the 5th Cohesion Forum, the Coalition for Sustainable EU Funds lays out their common vision on the future Cohesion Policy in this paper.
EU Regional Policy and Structural and Cohesion Funds (SCF) should foster sustainable development and catalyse the transformation to a resource-efficient society, one whose energy consumption is low and is based on renewable sources. In so doing it should support the deployment of energy-saving measures and renewable energy sources and should contribute to the decarbonisation of the transport sector. At the same time it should prevent any harmful social and environmental impacts in its investments and actively protect biodiversity and improve ecosystem resilience.
