Room JAN 6Q2
Instrument of the European Cohesion Policy, URBACT is a European Territorial Cooperation programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Member/Partner States of the European Union since 2002.
URBACT finances and enables local authorities to work together to develop new and sustainable solutions to major urban challenges, through networking activities, knowledge-sharing, and capacity-building for urban practitioners.
URBACT currently counts 24 networks involving around 200 EU cities and more than 2 000 local stakeholders actively working to develop and implement participatory and integrated policies at local level. The number of URBACT networks and cities is expected to grow by the end of 2020.
URBACT also actively contributes to the Urban Agenda for the EU (UAEU) as a member of the 12 partnerships, as an observer in the DG meeting on Urban Affairs and in the Urban Development Group, and as a partner proposing candidate urban authorities for the UAEU partnerships to the DG meeting.
