Road to Recovery

Lisbon, Portugal – 27 de January de 2023

Welcome

Background

As part of a wide-ranging response, the aim of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is to mitigate the economic and social impact of the coronavirus pandemic and make European economies and societies more sustainable, resilient and better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the green and digital transitions.

Currently, most National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) are approved and implementation is underway in the Member States.

According to the Recovery and Resilience Facility Regulation, the European Parliament (EP) has an important role in the monitoring of the implementation of the Facility. It is for this reason that the Conference of Presidents has established an EP Working Group on the monitoring of the RRF.

Objectives

  • Support the EPP Mayors, regional and local representatives
  • Increase awareness of the Resilience and Recovery Facility in the EU Member States
  • Explain the scope, objectives, targets and intended outcome of RRF projects and reforms
  • Explain and make aware that all RRF money is coming from the EU
  • Raise awareness of EU help in Member States
  • Ensure that EPP Mayors, regional and local representatives express their point of view as regards their involvement in the drawing up and implementation of NRRP
  • Provide support to EPP Mayors, regional and local representatives in highlighting shortcomings in the drawing up and implementation of NRRP and – where relevant – previous policy shortcomings by the government that have accelerated the crisis
  • Provide a platform for citizens, businesses, NGOs and other stakeholders as regards the process of drawing up and implementation of NRRP
  • Promote the NRRP by highlighting the benefits of the reforms and investments for the development of the targeted Member States. Highlight specific investment projects implemented through the RRF
