The CPMR has launched a Task Force on Cohesion Policy Indicators. The Task Force will examine the limitations of the Structural Funds allocation methodology with the view to proposing a revised methodology for the post-2020 Cohesion Policy.
The Task Force will be led by the Region Basse-Normandie (France).
Back in June last year, the CPMR Political Bureau adopted a Policy Position which suggested improvements in terms of the allocation methodology for European Structural and Investment Funds. The document suggested that Cohesion Policy funding should be based on a wider set of territorial criteria, on timely statistics, whilst recognising territorial diversity and the right level of territorial unit.
