Common provisions on the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund Plus, the Cohesion Fund, and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and financial rules for those (debate)

  Soraya Post (S&D), in writing. – Working on structural funds and the CPR, my main goal was to ensure that the relevant funds become a tool to protect, develop and empower people. I wanted to ensure that the future projects financed by these funds will be as inclusive and as non-discriminatory as possible and that they will enable better life prospects for everybody in the EU. Through the non-discriminatory outreach of these funds, we can hopefully eradicate poverty, one of the greatest challenges in the EU today, and achieve the SDGs, thereby making our society a sustainable one. I am happy to see that so many of my amendments to this end were taken on board by the REGI Committee. I am relieved to see that the elimination of poverty has been designated as one of the goals of CPR, similarly to the achievement of the SDGs. I am also proud to see that my call for a stronger gender aspect in all dimensions and stages of the relevant programmes was incorporated into the text. And finally, I am happy to read that my push for more transparency was heard.
