The Eighth Report on Economic, Social and Territorial Cohesion published by the European Commission and the note on the optimisation of public investments made by the OECD for the French presidency have been added to the Library section.
The Commission published the 8th Cohesion Report on 9 February, presenting a first picture of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic at the regional level. It also shows both positive and negative trends in EU regions, cities and rural areas. The Report assesses economic, social and territorial cohesion in the European Union.
In parallel with the analyses in the 8th Cohesion Report, the note requested by the French presidency from the OECD on the optimisation of public investments shows similar effects in other regions of the world. It illustrates how transitions are affecting regions in a wide range of countries and outlines the levers that should be applied in the future to better address them.
