Question for written answer E-004118-18

Rule 130

 Subject:  Absorption of funds for proper waste management measures in Greece
 Answer in writing 

It is widely known that Greece has a waste management problem, and in certain circumstances, of course, this poses particular risks to human health and the environment.

In order to avoid such scenarios and to support the Member States, within the framework of Directive 2008/98/EC (development of waste management plans) which lays down guidelines for the proper management of waste, requiring prevention, selective collection, recycling, mechanical biological treatment and landfill, the Commission assessed the waste management plans submitted by the regional authorities of Greece in the period up to 31 December 2016.

In view of the above and the actions of the European Regional Development Fund and the Cohesion Fund for the 2014-2020 programming period and in relation to its actions:

Could the Commission provide figures on the amounts that have been made available from the above funds, per region, for waste management, as well as the projects that have been approved and the funds that have been absorbed?

Could it assess the causes of reduced absorption of funds, where this is the case?
