The SF thematic priority 'Transition to a low carbon economy' provides funds to regions to help reach targets to cut greenhouse gas emissions by introducing energy efficiencies, supporting renewables and encouraging low carbon lifestyles. Local actions like improving energy use in housing and public buildings are key parts of the EU response to climate change and will be priority themes in the next Cohesion policy. The Health Gain online guide, with its use of the DPSEEA model, provides a good starting point for regional officials looking to develop their own plans for a low carbon economy.

This workshop featured a mixture of plenary sessions and small group work. Aligned with the Commission's proposals for cohesion policy 2014-2020, the workshop offered regional officials the necessary skills to engage with the new programme requirements for integrated territorial development and collaborative working.

     Organised with the support of the European Centre for Environment & Human Health.
