European regions calling for a green paper for mountain regions

Jul 03, 2008 / alpMedia
The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is calling for the European Commission to deliver a green paper on development for the mountain regions, with such fields as economic and structural funds, employment policy, nature protection, civil defence, the environment and energy policy, and also transport and agricultural policies combined in an integrated approach that does justice to the special character of the mountain regions.
This appeal for a dedicated European mountain policy, on the model of those already created for maritime and urban regions, was formulated by over 340 elected representatives of the regions and municipalities of Europe in a resolution adopted on 19 June. The resolution also calls for political responsibilities for the mountain regions to be bundled and vested in one single EU Commissioner.
