Germany in the Light of the Territorial Agenda – The ESPON Perspective
- 394 Downloads
The European Union’s Territorial Agenda, agreed upon in May 2007, aims at a more competitive and sustainable Europe that consists of diverse regions. Strengthening territorial cohesion is considered as a main goal to be fulfilled in view of major territorial challenges. These are, among other things, regionally diverse impacts of climate change, impacts of EU enlargement, and the territorial effects of demographic change. Germany, as a vital part of Europe, is also facing these challenges. The Territorial Agenda encourages the strengthening of regional identities and an improved use of the territorial diversity of European regions. The respective recommendations are concretised in six priorities for territorial development in the EU.
