Revitalising areas facing structural difficulties
Objective 2 of the Structural Funds aims to revitalise all
areas facing structural difficulties, whether industrial,
rural, urban or dependent on fisheries. Though situated in
regions whose development level is close to the Community
average, such areas are faced with different types of socio-economic
difficulties that are often the source of high unemployment.
- the evolution of industrial or service sectors;
- a decline in traditional activities in rural areas;
- a crisis situation in urban areas;
- difficulties affecting fisheries activity.
