Cohesion policy will be crucial to ensuring a balanced recovery following the coronavirus crisis, fostering convergence and making sure no one is left behind.

Following the initial crisis response already delivered, Cohesion policy will now focus on:

  • ensuring crisis repair, so that citizens and companies weather the storm
  • creating sound foundations for recovery, by promoting convergence, restoring growth and employment as quickly as possible, as well as a resilient economy and society in the long-term, based on the twin objectives of a green and digital transition.

REACT-EU Initiative to continue and extend the crisis response and repair measures that cohesion policy has already started delivering through the changes brought by the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative, while enlarging the scope to cover green, digital, and growth-enhancing investments.
