Why discuss this?
The transition towards climate neutrality cannot be achieved through environmental policies alone. Luckily, EU cohesion policy, which accounts for about one third of the EU budget, supports this process through country-specific investment strategies pinned to the European Green Deal ensuring that projects in all EU regions are aligned with objectives to fight climate change.
In addition to the traditional cohesion policy funds (European Regional Development Fund, Cohesion Fund and European Social Fund Plus), the newly created Just Transition Fund will support the transition in regions relying on fossil fuels and high-emissions industries over the period of 2021-2027 helping the regions most affected by the green transition.
