Romania Catching-Up Regions : Strategic Requirements for Organizational Models (Romanian)

Strategic requirements are a way to ensure that EU funds generate more value added than just the investments they finance. For the 2021-2027 programming period, Romania will receive around thirty billion Euro through European Structural and Investment Funds (ESFI). This sizable budget will help address a number of development challenges throughout the country. To be able to access these funds, Romania, as all other EU member states, has to meet a number of strategic requirements. Generally, these strategic requirements cover most sectors covered by EU funds, and include the national level and local levels, and from the managing authorities and intermediary bodies to end beneficiaries. Moreover, in addition to the minimum strategic requirements imposed by the European Commission, there are also a set of additional strategic requirements imposed by national governments. The report proposes a way to think about potential strategic requirements for the SUD 2021-2027, based on the types of organizational models that could be adopted. The report also discusses some of the risks that should be kept in mind when the decision for a SUD approach is taken, focusing on three types of risks: 1) contextual s; 2) implementation; and 3) collaboration.
