Mehr Unterstützung für Gebiete mit natürlichen und demografischen Nachteilen im Rahmen der Kohäsionspolitik (Artikel 174 AEUV)

Opinion Number: CDR 2959/2022
Commission: COTER
Status: Currently in discussion
Date: 01/12/2022
Article 174 TFEU, envisages that the Union shall promote its economic, social and territorial cohesion, thereby paying particular attention to rural areas, areas affected by industrial transition, and regions which suffer from severe and permanent natural or demographic handicaps such as the northernmost regions with very low population density and island, cross-border and mountain regions.

The main political objective of this opinion would be to outline the main features of these territories, their assets as well as their challenges and to suggest policy options to ensure a better application of cohesion policy that caters for the specific development needs of these territories, thus achieving balanced development and a fair recovery across the EU regions.

The opinion would assess synergies with ongoing and upcoming initiatives aimed at accelerating green and digital transition, addressing demographic challenges and providing for a long term vision for on rural and remote areas.



Workshop "Cohesion Policy As A Tool To Boost And Support Entrepreneurship In Islands"

Ms Maupertuis participated in an event on how Cohesion policy could boost entrepreneurship in islands, hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee and promoted by the Chambers of Commerce of Islands (INSULEUR). This workshop intended to foster a reflection on several key areas where Cohesion Policy support to insular enterprises could be improved in order to achieve a greater and significant impact of EU and national policies on economic, social and territorial cohesion. The workshop was an excellent occasion to promote the CoR views on this topic and explore new new sources of growth, such as green economy, sustainable tourism, health and social services including the “silver economy” and cultural and creative industries, etc.
