The European Committee of the Regions (CoR) is drafting an Opinion on "Covenant of Mayors post 2020".

Mrs BRIGHENTI has prepared a Working Document which can be found at this link in Italian and English.

Key questions to be addressed during the meeting are:
- How can we fine-tune the Covenant of Mayors framework to ensure its scope to be comprehensive, but still feasible for cities and regions?
- How can we further enhance multilevel governance mechanisms into the Covenant of Mayors community?
- How can we support the medium-long term engagement of cities and regions in the Covenant of Mayors initiative and support them in the transition to 2030 commitments?
- Which are the main improvements we would like to have in the Covenant initiative from a technical and financial point of view?
The adoption calendar of the opinion is as follows:
