Cohesion in Mountainous Regions of the EU

15-02-2016

Their specific potentials and opportunities of mountain areas need to be considered as much as their challenges. Mountain areas are too diverse to elaborate an integrated European strategy. However, a framework for development strategies in mountain areas can be developed, taking into account the specific challenges and importance of mountain farming, the high levels of biodiversity in mountain areas, and their specific exposure to climate change. Cohesion policy could use such a framework to better ...

Their specific potentials and opportunities of mountain areas need to be considered as much as their challenges. Mountain areas are too diverse to elaborate an integrated European strategy. However, a framework for development strategies in mountain areas can be developed, taking into account the specific challenges and importance of mountain farming, the high levels of biodiversity in mountain areas, and their specific exposure to climate change. Cohesion policy could use such a framework to better address the demographic challenges of many mountain areas and to promote their economic and social development more efficiently with an enhanced sustainable development perspective. This also presupposes more flexible multi-level governance arrangements.

Impact of the Economic Crisis on Social, Economic and Territorial Cohesion of the European Union

16-06-2014

The impact of the economic and financial crisis that started in 2008 is still being felt. In November 2008, the European Commission launched a European Economic Recovery Plan with a view to coordinate Member States’ action in response to the crisis. In this context, the Study uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in order to provide an overview of the impact of the crisis across Member States and regions, in terms of economic, social and territorial cohesion, and to assess ...

In this context, the Study uses a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods in order to provide an overview of the impact of the crisis across Member States and regions, in terms of economic, social and territorial cohesion, and to assess the responses of cohesion policy to counteract the crisis. Volume II of the study (containing case studies on Italy, Germany, Poland and Bulgaria) is available under Annex.

Economy of the EU regions

19-09-2012

The territory of each Member State (MS) is divided into regions under the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) classification. It is a geographical nomenclature for collection and harmonisation of statistics and for socio-economic analysis. There are three NUTS levels; the first one, major socio-economic regions, the second one basic regions for the application of regional policies and the third one small regions for specific diagnoses. NUTS 2 has 271 regions: Belgium (11), Bulgaria ...

The territory of each Member State (MS) is divided into regions under the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) classification. It is a geographical nomenclature for collection and harmonisation of statistics and for socio-economic analysis. There are three NUTS levels; the first one, major socio-economic regions, the second one basic regions for the application of regional policies and the third one small regions for specific diagnoses. NUTS 2 has 271 regions: Belgium (11), Bulgaria (6), the Czech Republic (8), Denmark (5), Germany (39), Ireland (2), Greece (13), Spain (19), France (26), Italy (21), Hungary (7), the Netherlands (12), Austria (9), Poland (16), Portugal (7), Romania (8), Slovenia (2), Slovakia (4), Finland (5), Sweden (8) and the UK (37). Estonia, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg and Malta are all considered as single regions. This paper takes into consideration NUTS 2 level because regions eligible for aid from Structural Funds are selected on the basis of this classification.

Toward a European Policy for Mountain Regions

01-07-1999

To maximise the potential of the mountainous regions of Europe the framework of current European policies in this sector must be improved. The report advocates an integrated and flexible approach, making it possible to adapt to the diversity of these areas, taking account of their differing economic, environmental and sociological aspects.

The objective of the present study is the improvement of the planning system, the selection of projects and the assesment of the impacts of regional programmes, and particularly concerns the re-definitions of the sets of indicators in use, in order to ensure: - that intervnations funded by Stractural Funds are in line with the main EU policies end espesialy those on; and - better exploitation of the opportunities and to confront more effectivily with the threats of technology. Technological content of regional interventions and their links with EU policies on suatainable development and environmnet, employment and equal opportunities were analysed based on a number of regional programmes. The analysis resulted in a taxonomy of actions with technological content which formulate the basis for the clasification of indicators. Further the impact of technology on sustainable development, employment and equal opportunities was analysed and sets of baseline and technology impact indicators were developed. Finally a methodology framework was developed which allows EU policies on sustainable development and quality of the environment, employment and promotion of equal opportunities to be taken into consideration during planning and evaluation of interventions and selection of projects. The framework also allows the assessment of the use of technology to be introduced as an integrate part of impact evaluation and project selection.
