Poland Catching-Up Regions 3 : Overview Report (English)

This report provides an overview of the third phase of the Poland catching-up regions initiative (PL CuR3). It presents components that have been delivered over the period July 2018 to June 2019 in collaboration with local, regional, and national stakeholders, the European Commission (EC), and the World Bank (WB). The mandate of the European Union’s (EU) cohesion policy is to narrow the development gaps and reduce the disparities between the member states and regions. Consequently, Corina Crețu, the Commissioner for Regional and Urban Policy, together with the task force for better implementation, initiated the CuR initiative to identify growth constraints in less developed regions, and provide targeted assistance and programs to foster growth. The Government of Poland and the EC were particularly interested in finding ways to improve the performance of CuR and identify ways to spur growth and innovation in their economies. The third phase of the CuR activity focused on two main topics: (i) Polish midsize cities which are in socioeconomic decline; and (ii) replication or extension of activities piloted during the two previous CuR phases.
