Toward Mountains 2020

Year of publication2013
Publication typeOther
The framework proposed for European policies for the period 2014-2020 is a new framework, that we must understand and appropriate. More integrated, based on a 'common strategic framework' assembling the five funds which mainly contribute to territorial development, articulated around 11 investment priorities, it is clearly oriented towards the results Europe wishes to achieve collectively.
How can mountains contribute to this project? What do they need in order to do so? Which actions have been undertaken in some areas which have proved sucessful?
These are the questions Euromontana will try to answer through the "Toward Mountains 2020" process, hoping to contribute to smart programming of European policies towards 2020 aiming to achieve sustainable mountain development. This initiative was conceived as a continuous, multi-step process.

The first step consisted in capitalising on the thematic work undertaken in the period 2007-2013, to extract lessons learnt and organising them according to the 11 priorities of the common strategic framework. 11 fiches have been prepared, one per priority, compiling results of of our work and useful links.
Prior to these fiches, a chapter has been introduced that is aiming at informing mountain people about the logic of the new framework, building mainly on the initial Commission's proposals, waiting for a definitive framework approved by the Parliament and Council.
