- Category: Letters to Policy Makers
- Published: 15 January 2019
On 22 January 2019 and in February the REGI Committee will vote on the Common Provisions Regulation (CPR) and on the European Regional Development Fund / Cohesion Fund Regulation (ERDF/CF) respectively. These two pieces of legislation will determine the shape and direction of Cohesion Policy post-2020.
This letter aims at drawing MEPs' attention to key provisions within these regulations that are needed to promote the urgently needed just and fair transition away from fossil fuels to a zero-emission and circular economy, for the creation of a more sustainable Europe that brings prosperity without harming the climate, biodiversity or unnecessarily wasting resources.
