Cohesion policy and cities: the urban contribution to growth and jobs in the regions

During the Informal meeting of ministers responsible for regional policy on 06 December 2005 in Bristol, United Kingdom, Commissioner Danuta Hübner presented a paper on “Cohesion Policy and cities: the urban contribution to growth and jobs in the regions”. The paper sets out an agenda for the promotion of a more integrated and strategic approach to urban development that can deliver more growth, jobs, social inclusion and improved environmental quality. The proposals are part of the Commission’s reform of cohesion policy for the 2007-2013 period.

A public consultation on the Commission’s paper has been launched by that date and is open for contributions and comments until 17 February 2006. The results of this consultation will be published and inform the final version of the Community Strategic Guidelines for Cohesion, the document which will set the framework and future priorities for European funded programmes in the 2007-2013 period.

Text of the consultation :

The Commission therefore invites all relevant stakeholders to participate in this consultation exercise and would welcome comments before 17 February 2006: E-mail

Cohesion Policy in Support of Growth and Jobs: Community Strategic Guidelines, 2007-2013

As a first step in launching the discussion on the priorities for the new generation of cohesion policy programmes, the Commission published on 6 July 2005 draft Community Strategic Guidelines entitled “Cohesion Policy in Support of Growth and Jobs: Community Strategic Guidelines, 2007-2013” pdf. The Guidelines set out a framework for new programmes which will be supported by the European Regional Development Funds (ERDF), the European Social Fund (ESF) and the Cohesion Fund.

These programmes aim to promote balanced, harmonious and sustainable development throughout the EU and improve the quality of life of Europe’s citizens. The key test for programmes in future will be that of their contribution to growth and jobs in line with the renewed Lisbon agenda, which was agreed by the Member States meeting at the Spring Council in March 2005.

Bearing in mind the limited resources available for cohesion policy programmes in the Member States and regions, the consultation is intended to help find a response to the following questions:

  • to what extent should new elements, if any, be incorporated into cohesion policy to support the growth and jobs agenda and the Lisbon process?
  • which elements do you consider to be top priority in pursuit of the growth and jobs agenda and which elements do you consider to be less important or marginal to this agenda?
  • how can cohesion policy help to achieve more balanced development, including building sustainable communities in urban and rural areas?
  • to what extent can the territorial dimension play an important role in cohesion policy and its support for the growth and jobs agenda?

The results of the consultation exercise will help to shape the final version of the Guidelines to be communicated by the Commission to the Council. The Commission therefore invites all relevant stakeholders to participate in this consultation exercise and would welcome comments before 30 September 2005.

Practical guide to communication on the Structural Funds 2000-2006

This document was developed by the Commission in collaboration with the informal working group, Structural Funds Information TEAM (SFIT). It has already been the subject of an initial consultation with those responsible for information activities in the Member States, who have access to a SFIT space created on the CIRCA platform, which is within the Europa website.

DG Regional Policy now wishes to open this consultation to all those in charge of Structural Funds information activities. Participants are invited to submit observations on the text pdf and to make further suggestions based on of their practical experiences .

As a reminder, this practical guide is a dynamic tool which will be continuously enriched thanks to examples of good practices undertaken within the various programmes. These examples can be proposed as they develop. The deadline for the consultation does not apply to these examples.

Regional development and cohesion in the European Union

The future of European cohesion policy is an issue that directly concerns the lives of a large number of European citizens. With this policy, the European Union helps promote the adjustment of regions whose development is lagging behind, the conversion of areas facing structural difficulties, the diversification of rural areas affected by agricultural decline and the regeneration of urban areas in decline.

But are the results really worth the amounts invested? Should there really be solidarity measures at European level? Should it be stepped up in an enlarged Union? What priorities should be set ?
