Social & territorial cohesion

One of the key objectives of the RRF is to promote social and territorial cohesion and to mitigate the social impact of the crisis. This should also contribute to fighting poverty and tackling unemployment, enabling Member States to rebound while leaving nobody behind. The reforms and investments supported by the RRF should contribute to improving social and territorial infrastructure and services, including social protection and welfare systems, the inclusion of disadvantaged groups, support employment and skills development, and lead to the creation of high-quality and stable jobs.

Under this pillar, the policy areas marked with an asterisk (*) are used for the social expenditure methodology.
