Pillar 1 - Connecting the region
This pillar contributes substantially to achieving the European Cohesion Policy objectives.
Specifically, it contributes to
· A greener Europe by promoting sustainable energy in PA 2
· A more connected Europe by promoting mobility on the Danube river (PA1a) as well as via rail, road and air (PA1b)
· A Europe closer to the citizens by supporting an integrated approach across the PAs and through projects within the PA 3 Culture & Tourism.
Further this pillar is crucial in supporting three new strategic objectives of the EUSDR:
· Counteracting Climate Change
· Stimulating Sustainable Development
· Improving Mobility and Connectivity
