Upscaling the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework: A resilient EU budget fit for new challenges

Na kratko 07-12-2022

The current multiannual financial framework (MFF) is under extreme strain owing to the multiple crises the EU is facing, notably the war in Ukraine and the effects it has triggered. With funds and flexibility measures already extensively used and further funding challenges still ahead, the European Parliament's Committee on Budgets, in an own-initiative report, calls for an urgent and ambitious revision of the MFF to increase the EU budget and make it more flexible. This should enable the EU to confront upcoming challenges and ensure greater transparency and democratic accountability. The report is due to be debated and voted upon during the December plenary session.
