Detailed tracking of the financing of climate action by Cohesion policy is now open access
To reach the EU agreed climate and energy targets by 2020, the European Commission committed itself to support climate action with a target of at least 20% of the 2014-2020 Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF). Such a political commitment is part of a wider effort to mainstream climate actions and contribute to the efforts to mitigate climate change and adapt our natural and human built environment and economy to the expected impact of climate change.
The ERDF and Cohesion Fund by their nature and the scope of their objectives were seen as important contributors to the overall EU tracking target. A total of EUR 54.8 billion investment from these funds is being delivered in the period 2014-2020. You can now track the planned investments and the progress in implementing them using open data.
