BRIDGES – Territories with Geographical Specificities

Regions with specific territorial features have received increasing attention in recent years, most notably in article 174 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU).
Gaining a better understanding of the territories with geographic specificities and their relevant challenges and opportunities is therefore crucial for the European policy dialogue and debate for developing Cohesion Policy post-2020 and a renewed Territorial Agenda for Europe which is due to be adopted by 2021.
The following types of territories constitute the main focus for this project: sparsely populated regions; mountain regions; Islands, including island-states and coastal areas.

The policy analysis responded to following questions:

  • What does insularity, peripherality, remoteness, accessibility, vulnerability, attractiveness, lack of critical mass mean for territories with geographic specificities?
  • How does it impact the competitiveness, quality of life and sustainable growth of these territories?
  • Where and how is public intervention required?
  • How can place-based, smart and integrated approaches support the challenges encountered by territories with geographic specificities?
  • How can territorial cooperation contribute to strengthening the capacity of local and regional authorities to identify their growth potentials and formulate development strategies

WYG Consulting was a partner in this research project, led by Spatial Foresight.

Project value: 641.978 EUR
