Oct 1, 2013 | News

(01 October 2013) – DATAR, the French administration in charge of land use planning and territorial development, has published a study on integrated territorial approaches in the EU 2014-2020 programming period.

As part of their preparation for the programming of EU funds for the period 2014-2020, the Member States of the European Union are required to specify in the so-called Partnership Agreement, and within each programme, the arrangements they have taken to ensure an integrated approach to the use of funds for territorial development under the Common Strategic Framework.

In order to inform programming decisions and define and clarify the conditions of use of certain tools proposed in the regulations, DATAR commissioned a study, which is being overseen by a steering committee composed of the French ministries responsible for managing EU funds, the Association of French Regions, the Assembly of French Départements, the Assembly of French communities, the Paying and Services Agency, the Association for the Promotion and Federation of Pays, LEADER France, the Cross-border Operational Mission (MOT), the Mission Europe Urbain, and the agency for Energy and Territorial Development (ETD).
