Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
David McAllister
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Attractive living conditions in all parts of the EU

The majority of people in the EU live in rural areas. These often provide high environmental quality, civic engagement and strong regional cohesion. However, they also face particular challenges, primarily that of demographic change. Digitalisation offers such areas good opportunities which are not yet in evidence everywhere.

Does the Commission intend to design its funding policy on a consistently region-by-region basis and counter the move towards centralisation, which is evident from the call for national plans?

Will it also do this for the pillars of the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD)?

Does the Commission plan to increase the financial and human resources devoted to outreach for EU structural funding?
