NGO statement on EU funds’ programming half time
Briefing | 14 November 2013
Based on analysis of Partnership Agreements and experiences of ‘partnership’ in current programming, participants are regrettably forming the view that Member States’ current planning of Regional Development funding for the period 2014 -2020 fails to acknowledge that Europe’s current ecological footprint lays way beyond the planet’s carrying capacity and, as a consequence, that economic and regional development – fostered by the EU funds – has to transform production and consumption patterns to a sustainable level that does not over-exploit natural resources.
