Objective 2
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. These include:

  • 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.
