Urban dimension of macro-regions

The fifth report on Cohesion Policy highlights both the role of cities as well as the specific problems derived from the geography, orography and position of certain territories.

An ex ante evaluation of the sector policies will facilitate that the territorial cohesion objectives are integrated in the corresponding European and national policies with territorial impact, in order for it not to be necessary to use the financial resources to compensate the negative effects of the sector policies. A possible response to this challenge could come from the current and future development of the macro-regional strategies which include an strong urban dimension.

This strong urban dimension has been defined an analysed by CAAC at its General Assembly, and it is now open for comments and dialogue with interested stakeholders.
