Greening the European Cohesion Policy

Cohesion policy will represent over one third of the Budget of the European Union between 2014-2020. Intelligently investing cohesion funds can help restore the environment, create employment and rejuvenate the local economy at the same time.


EU cohesion policy (2007-2013) already provides a range of supportive measures to invest in green infrastructure. The examples outlined in this publication – such as natural flood protection and floodplain restoration – have been supported by the cohesion policy. Building on this experience, the future cohesion policy (2014-2020) should significantly increase the opportunity for regions to strategically spend on ecosystems, green infrastructure and natura 2000.
