Handbook on the Europe 2020 strategy for cities and regions
Following the adoption of CoR Opinion on the Role of LRAs in achieving the objectives of the Europe 2020 Strategy, the Committee of the Regions decided to produce a "Handbook on the Europe 2020 strategy for cities and regions". The document, drawn up in collaboration with the Commission, aims to provide clear explanations on how local and regional authorities can contribute to the implementation of the strategy. It capitalises on examples of good practices collected through the surveys conducted by the CoR's Europe 2020 Monitoring Platform or existing databases of good practices managed by the European Commission. It gives a non-exhaustive picture of existing and accessible information, good practices, sources of financing and other policy instruments related to the Europe 2020 Strategy. The handbook is not intended as a guide on how to implement the Europe 2020 Strategy, but to inform and support local and regional authorities in their implementation of the Strategy.
