Monitoring Cohesion Policy Funds in Central and Eastern Europe


European partnerships are fundamental to the programming and implementation of the cohesion policy by the European Union. For a partnership to be effective, Member States must establish Monitoring Committees in which the partners are represented, informed and empowered to contribute to the design of the programmes. Monitoring Committees therefore play a supervisory role in cohesion policy.

This briefing by EUKI project Local Leaders for the Next Generation provides an overview of the Monitoring Committees charged with overseeing environment, climate, energy and just transition programmes in Central and Eastern Europe. It includes an explanation of the legal framework underpinning the Monitoring Committees and outlines the functioning and composition of these committees, highlighting good and bad examples and recommendations.
