This session is part of a group of sessions organised within the framework of the Urban Development Network (UDN). At the session, the European Urban Initiative (EUI) of the Cohesion Policy proposal 2021-2027 will be introduced and discussed with the key stakeholders from the perspective of the support needs of cities. The EUI will be aimed at ensuring a coherent support for cities and strengthening integrated and participatory approaches to Sustainable Urban Development. The initiative will also build on all the thematic priorities of the Urban Agenda for the EU and will provide a stronger link to other EU policies.
