Within the EU, the urban dimension is at the very heart of EU Cohesion Policy. More than EUR 100 billion is being invested up to 2020 to support urban mobility, energy efficiency, as well as urban renewal, research and innovation capacity, and regeneration of deprived communities. Making the Union's cities more sustainable is one of the priorities of the 7th Environment Action Programme.
Across the globe, the European development policy seeks to improve living conditions in cities. These efforts are directed to slum upgrading, access to water and sanitation, urban mobility, energy efficiency and affordable housing, land access, and disaster prevention and preparedness. Closer to its borders the EU relies on the European Neighbourhood Policy and the Enlargement policy.
