   EP - Decision by Parliament, 1st reading/single reading
Details

The European Parliament adopted by 475 votes to 93, with 53 abstentions, a legislative resolution on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on the European Regional Development Fund and on the Cohesion Fund.

The European Parliament's position adopted at first reading under the ordinary legislative procedure amended the Commission's proposal as follows.

Tasks of the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund

The ERDF and the Cohesion Fund shall contribute to the overall objective of strengthening the Union’s economic, social and territorial cohesion by redressing the main regional imbalances in the Union through citizens oriented approach aimed at supporting community led development and fostering active citizenship:

- the ERDF shall contribute to reducing disparities between the levels of development of the various regions within the Union, and to reducing the backwardness of the least favoured regions including environmental challenges, through sustainable development and structural adjustment of regional economies;

- the Cohesion Fund shall contribute to projects in the field of trans-European networks and environment.

Specific objectives of the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund

The proposal divides these objectives into five main areas: a Europe that is smarter, greener, more connected, more social and closer to citizens which in turn are divided into twenty-one areas of intervention.

Parliament proposed to strengthen the possibility of taking action in the following sectors: digital connectivity and more efficient public administration; equitable transition and circular economy; social innovation; natural heritage, enhancement of protected natural spaces and sustainable tourism; zero emission urban mobility; environmentally friendly public transport networks; long-term socio-economic integration of refugees and migrants under international protection; support for capacity building of authorities responsible for the implementation of the funds.

ERDF operations shall contribute at least 35% of the overall ERDF financial envelope to the achievement of climate objectives (40% of the Cohesion Fund financial envelope).

The meaningful participation of regional and local authorities, civil society organisations, including beneficiaries, in all stages of the preparation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of ERDF programmes shall be ensured.

Criteria for thematic concentration of objectives

Members propose to restore the thematic concentration at the level of categories of regions classified according to their gross domestic product and not, as the Commission proposes, at the level of Member States classified according to their gross national income. They also believe that PO 2 (a greener Europe) should also be extended to the group of the most developed regions.

The draft legislative act specifies that regions shall spend at least 30 to 50% of the funding received for an intelligent and innovative Europe, and at least 30% for the fight against climate change and for the circular economy.

To ensure an appropriate and real margin of flexibility, Member States may, in justified cases, request additional flexibility from the percentage allocated to PO 1 (up to 5 percentage points, and up to 10 percentage points for outermost regions) at regional category level, once again with a view to better meeting the requirements of citizens and the economy.

Scope of the ERDF and Cohesion Fund

The ERDF shall support investments that help to preserve existing and create new jobs in SMEs and any support for SMEs in the form of grants and financial instruments. The Cohesion Fund shall support the improvement and development of the skills and administrative competences of local authorities necessary for the management of the funds.

Sectors excluded from ERDF assistance

The following shall be excluded from support:

- investments in new regional airport infrastructure, except for investments in the outermost regions, interventions relating to core TEN-T network and investments related to environmental protection;

- investments in waste disposal by landfilling, with the exception of the outermost regions and measures to decommission, reconvert or make safe existing facilities;

- investments in facilities for the treatment of residual waste, with the exception of the outermost regions and in the case of state-of-the-art recycling solutions in accordance with the principles of the circular economy and the waste hierarchy. Residual waste shall be understood as primarily non separately collected municipal waste and rejects from waste treatment.

Non-urban areas

Members propose allocating a minimum reserve (at least 5% of ERDF resources) to support and develop non-urban areas that are disadvantaged or suffer from natural, geographical or demographic handicaps. Of this amount, at least 17.5% would be allocated to rural areas and communities.

Sustainable urban development

Parliament proposed that at least 10% of ERDF resources allocated at national level under the Investment for Jobs and Growth objective (as opposed to 6% proposed by the Commission) should be allocated to sustainable urban development, in the form of a specific programme, a specific priority axis, community-led local development, integrated territorial investments or other territorial tools. Members reintroduced the possibility of integrated interventions co-financed under the ERDF/Cohesion Fund and the ESF+.

Specific objectives of the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund

The proposal divides these objectives into five main areas: a Europe that is smarter, greener, more connected, more social and closer to citizens which in turn are divided into twenty-one areas of intervention.

PURPOSE: to define the objectives and scope of the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Cohesion Fund (CF) for the period 2021-2017.

PROPOSED ACT: Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council.

ROLE OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT: the European Parliament decides in accordance with the ordinary legislative procedure and on an equal footing with the Council.

BACKGROUND: for the next multiannual financial framework covering the period 2021-2017, the Commission proposes to modernise cohesion policy to help redress imbalances within and between Member States.

Based on the evidence that t he applicable rules were overly complex and fragmented between the different funds and the various forms of financing, the Commission proposed to establish a single rulebook for seven EU funds implemented under shared management in order to simplify access to and use of EU Funds ( Common Provisions Regulation - CPR ).

The aims of the ERDF is to help to redress the main regional imbalances in the Union through participation in the development and structural adjustment of regions whose development is lagging behind and in the conversion of declining industrial regions.

The Cohesion Fund contributes financially to projects in the field of the environment and trans-European transport infrastructure networks. In many countries, the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund represent at least 50% of public investment - these Member States would not otherwise have the financial capacity to make such investments. There is considerable potential for spill-over effects across national and regional borders, for example in terms of investment in innovation and SMEs.

CONTENT: the proposal for a Regulation - presented for a Union of 27 Member States - sets out the provisions applicable to both ERDF and Cohesion Fund intervening under the ‘Investment for jobs and growth’ goal and, with regard to the ERDF, under the ‘European territorial cooperation’ goal (Interreg).

Objectives for ERDF and Cohesion Fund : the ERDF shall support the achievement of the following policy objectives (PO):

a smarter Europe through innovation, digitisation, industrial change and support for small and medium-sized enterprises (PO 1); a greener, low-carbon Europe, investing in energy transition, renewable energy and the fight against climate change (PO 2); a more connected Europe with strategic transport and digital communication networks (PO 3); a more social Europe, which will support quality jobs, education, skills, social inclusion and equal access to health care (PO 4); a Europe closer to citizens, which will support locally driven development strategies and sustainable urban development across the European Union (PO 5).

The Cohesion Fund shall support PO 2 and specific objectives under PO 3 in particular the development of a sustainable, climate resilient, intelligent, secure and intermodal TEN-T as well as promoting sustainable multimodal urban mobility.

Operations under the ERDF are expected to contribute 30 % of the overall financial envelope of the ERDF to climate objectives (37% under the Cohesion Fund).

Landfills, airport infrastructure, the tobacco industry, decommissioning of nuclear facilities shall not be supported by the funds.

Thematic concentration : in the current context of budget cuts, the proposed Regulation provides that the majority of ERDF and Cohesion Fund investments shall be geared towards the first two objectives: a smarter Europe (PO 1) and a greener Europe (PO 2). Member States shall invest between 65% and 85% of their resources under the two funds in these priority areas, depending on their income ratio: countries with GNI above 100% of the EU average shall allocate at least 85% of their ERDF resources to PO 1 and 2, and at least 60% to PO 1; countries with GNI between 75% and 100% of the EU average shall allocate at least 45% of their ERDF resources to PO 1 and at least 30% to PO 2; countries with a GNI below 75% of the EU average should allocate at least 35% of their ERDF resources to PO 1 and at least 30% to PO 2.

This thematic concentration shall be attained at national level , with some flexibility at the level of individual programmes and between the three groups of Member States formed according to their gross national income.

Scope of the funds :

the ERDF shall support the following: (a) investments in infrastructure; (b) investments in access to services; (c) productive investments in SMEs ; (d) equipment, software and intangible assets; (e) information, communication, studies, networking, cooperation, exchange of experience and activities involving clusters; (f) technical assistance; the Cohesion Fund shall support the following: (a) investments in the environment, including investments related to sustainable development and energy presenting environmental benefits; (b) investments in TEN-T; (c) technical assistance.

Indicators : i n order to ensure consistent monitoring of progress achieved, the proposed Regulation refines the common set of output indicators, while adding for the first time a common set of results indicators. These latter enable reporting results in real time on the Open Data Platform and comparison across programmes and Member States. Evaluations will include lessons learned, problems and opportunities to further improve the actions and their impacts.

Specific territorial factors : the proposal provides for an increased focus on sustainable urban development by dedicating 6% of ERDF resources to this area, delivered through territorial instruments. It also provides for the setting up of a European Urban Initiative to be managed by the Commission.

The proposal also sets out special measures to accommodate the specific situation of outermost regions . These include schemes to offset transport costs and investments.

Proposed overall budget : the Commission proposal for a multiannual financial framework provides for an envelope of EUR 273 billion for the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund for the period 2021-2027, of which: (i) ERDF: EUR 200.62 billion and; (ii) Cohesion Fund: EUR 41.34 billion.
