On 3 March, two topics marked the agenda of the Commission for Territorial Cohesion Policy and EU Budget (COTER) of the European Committee of the Regions. First, the Committee's recommendations on the Just Transition Fund that is to assist carbon-intense regions in their path towards climate-neutrality. Second, the renewal of the Leipzig Charter on Sustainable European Cities, the multi-level governance model that needs to drive – and boost, sustainable urban development for the decades to come. Members of the European Parliament joined the afternoon session to debate on how to decarbonise the transport sector as a key factor to reach the objectives of the European Green Deal.
