The European Commission has updated the brochure ‘Urban Agenda for the EU – Multi-level governance in action’, initially developed and published in 2019, with the most recent UAEU developments in order to celebrate five years of cooperation and achievements under this initiative as well as to emphasis its role in supporting innovative and good governance and in implementing the New Urban Agenda (NUA) and connection to the New Leipzig Charter, the Ljubljana Agreement, the review of the UAEU’s contribution to the NUA, as well as answers of UAEU cities to COVID-19.
By reviewing the progress made in implementing the actions announced in the 2017 and drawing on the lessons learnt during the COVID-19 crisis, the report revisits the 2017 action plan to increase its effectiveness and adjust it to new realities. The European Commission examines how initiatives and programmes under the Multi-Annual Financial Framework 2021-2027 can be used to stimulate the recovery of border areas, whose economies have often been particularly severely disrupted by the crisis. The report also considers the EU’s external borders with neighbours that have an agreed accession path to join the European Union.
The renewed Territorial Agenda 2030 was adopted on 1 December 2020 in the Informal Meeting of Ministers responsible for Territorial Cohesion and/or Territorial Development organised by the German EU Presidency. The Territorial Agenda provides important links with Cohesion and other EU policies.
