The EU Commission has published the 6th Cohesion Report: Promoting development and good governance in EU regions and cities.

With over one hundred maps, this comprehensive report shows the impact of the crisis on EU cities and regions. The crisis has made the contribution of Cohesion Policy to public investment even more important. Cohesion Policy will make important investments during the period 2014-2020 contributions to boost innovation, support SMEs, encourage the low carbon economy and reduce poverty and exclusion as part of the Europe 2020 strategy. The report also underlines how good governance is critical for social and economic development and investment policies like Cohesion Policy.

You can consult the 6th Cohesion Report either in its complete or short version.
