Arrangements to Address
Territorial Challenges I
MS are to take account of geographic or demographic
features and take steps to address the specific territorial
challenges of each region to unlock their specific
development potential and thereby also helping them to
achieve smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in the most
efficient way.
The final choice of thematic objectives or actions within a
programme should thus be based on the specific context of
the Member State or region.
Regional
Policy
Arrangements to Address
Territorial Challenges II
Steps to be taken when preparing Partnership Agreements and
programmes:
- Analysis of development potential and capacity, particularly in
relation to key challenges identified in Europe 2020, NRPs and
relevant CSRs
- Assessment of major challenges to be addressed, identification of
bottlenecks, missing links, innovation gaps etc
- Assessment of cross-sectoral, cross-jurisdictional or cross-border
coordination challenges
- Identification of steps to achieve improved coordination across
different territorial levels and sources of funding to deliver an
integrated approach linking Europe 2020 with regional and local
actors
Regional
Policy
2. Integrated Territorial Investments
Regional
Policy
What is the idea?
• Integrated territorial development requires actions where
financial contributions come from different thematic
objectives and priorities
• Funding programmes need to dedicate specific contributions
to such integrated actions in this territory
• Every Member State should dedicate at least 5% of the ERDF
resources to integrated urban actions
Regional
Policy
Integrated Territorial Investment
• ITI = tool for integrated development strategies
combining funds from different programmes/axis.
• Option, not obligation for Managing Authority.
• No approval by the Commission.
• Mono/multi-fund (+ Rural Fund + Maritime Fund)
• Possible use of grants and financial instruments.
• Possible combination with CLLD.

3. Community-led Local Development
Regional
Policy
A specific methodology
• Not any type of (economic) development
taking place at local level;
• not a delivery instrument of specific EU
policies;
• not decentralisation of power to local
authorities,
• but one approach to engage local
communities in building place-based bottomup strategies
Regional
Policy
Past and present EU experiences
Broader local development approach
• EQUAL (partnerships)
• Territorial Pacts (integrated territorial
strategies)
• URBAN Community Initiatives (integrated
approach & community involvement)
Community-led local development:
• LEADER
• EFF AXIS 4 (FARNET)
Regional
Policy
