FEAD's Position on EC proposal on the European Regional Development Fund and on the Cohesion Fund 2021-2027
FEAD welcomes the proposal for a regulation on the European Regional Development Fund and on the Cohesion Fund. The allocation of EU structural funds can play an important role by investing in collection of waste and treatment infrastructures that will enable to shift towards options higher up in the waste hierarchy, taking into account the different situations and needs across the European Union.
Cohesion funds are important instruments to help Member States to meet European waste management rules and targets by investing in the adequate infrastructures that will drive towards a circular economy and reduce the negative effects of waste management on the environment.
Therefore, FEAD fully supports the amendments 34 and 35 of the REGI Committee’s draft report issued on 21st September 2018, by Rapporteur Andrea Cozzolino, which amends the article 6 entitled “Exclusion from the scope of the ERDF and the Cohesion Fund” of the Commission proposal.
