Report presented on 16 December 2016 by the European Commission assessing the implementation of the four EU macro-regional strategies.

Further information:

Since the European Council endorsed the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) in 2009, three further MRS have been developed: the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (EUSDR) in 2011, the EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) in 2014 and the EU Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP) in 2016.

The purpose of this report is two-fold. First, the report gives an assessment of the strategies’ state of implementation, takes stock of the main results and gives examples of good practice. Second, it draws lessons from the experience gained so far and presents a number of recommendations on possible further developments, also in the light of the future cohesion policy.
