 Subject:  Calabria regional operational programme 2014-2020: delays in the implementation of the strategy for the development of rural inland areas

In the context of the Regional Operational Programme (ROP) for Calabria 2014/2020, the strategy for the development of rural inland areas is experiencing significant delays.

With this strategy, the Region intends to support areas that are far removed from the big urban centres, through interventions aimed at improving essential services, economic development and the exploitation of unused land capital.

According to the ministerial classification, around 80% of Calabrian municipalities — that is a total of 327 — can be classified as ‘rural inland areas’.

Despite a financial envelope of approximately EUR 200 million from the ERDF, ESF and EAFRD funds, the implementation of the National (SNAI) and Regional Development Strategies (NSAI) for rural inland areas is proceeding very slowly.

Almost four years after the approval of the Regional Strategy (Regional Executive Decision No 490 of 27 November 2015), and more than one year after the approval of the Guidelines through Regional Executive Decision No 215 of 5 June 2018, not a single action has been completed.

In view of this, we should be grateful if the Commission would answer the following questions:
How much has been spent so far on the implementation of the national and regional strategies for the development of rural inland areas in Calabria?
Are the timeframes for the implementation of these strategies in Calabria suitable for reversing the process of depopulation of rural inland areas by improving the quality of life of communities and regenerating the local economy?
