New publication on the urban dimension in EU policies

The European Union contributes to the sustainable development of urban areas through a range of policies and initiatives which cover many areas of activity. In particular, the EU's cohesion policy, through the structural funds, plays a key role in underpinning the development and revitalisation of Europe’s towns and cities.

Designed to explain these initiatives in the field of urban policies, this updated guide from the European Commission's Inter-Service Group on Urban Development, looks at the ways in which cities can benefit from EU policies, explores the impact of European policies in urban areas, and offers information on potential sources of finance.
