EUSALP – EUROPEAN STRATEGY FOR THE ALPINE REGION

alpine_region_map_web

 

The EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) is the fourth macro-regional strategy. The Strategy aims to promote sustainable economic and social prosperity of the Alpine Region and it will affect around 80 million people living 48 regions in 7 countries.

The basis of the Strategy’s governance has three inter-related levels: political leadership and ownership; coordination; and implementation. At each level, different actors from the participating States and Regions take part in a General Assembly, an Executive Board and implementing bodies. The core of the implementation level is the 9 Action Groups.

The Strategy is build upon three interdependent thematic objectives that focus on economic growth and innovation; mobility and connectivity; environment and energy and a cross-cutting objective aiming to build a macro-regional governance model. To support these objectives, the EUSALP Strategy focuses on nine actions priorities.
