The future of cohesion policy
Greens/EFA position paper
The Greens/EFA are in favour of a strong and targeted Cohesion Policy. The main objective of Cohesion Policy is strengthening economic, social and territorial cohesion by reducing regional disparities, improving the well-being of and providing equal opportunities to all citizens regardless of their place of residence. Cohesion Policy has to promote a sustainable and balanced territorial development which is embedded in an ecosystem-based approach and takes account of the EU's international responsibility in the fight against climate change.
