Some 15 % of the EU population, or over 60 million people, are living below the poverty line, though poverty rates vary widely across the EU. • They set the goal of making a decisive impact on eradicating poverty by 2010.

  41. 41. Regional contribution Regions can bring some relevant contributions towards the Lisbon objectives: 1.- Promoting economic growth: The regional planning of Stockholm in the economic field and education and training; Innovation strategies The creation of Employment and Economic Development Centres; Life long training strategies; The creation of economic development agencies; Consultancy and training for SMEs. 2. Achieving full employment: Regional and local employment strategies; Active employment policies regarding job creation; Modernisation of the employment services. Fundación Comunidad Valenciana – Región Europea
  42. 42. Regional contribution 3. Strengthening social cohesion: Creation of support schemes with regard to disadvantaged people groups; Specific programmes for immigrants; Creation of working/learning places to improve the link between education and the labour market; Measures regarding prevention of school drop outs. 4. Governance: The formulation of regional employment strategies; Social dialogue; Monitoring and evaluation practices. Fundación Comunidad Valenciana – Región Europea
  43. 43. Regions Despite the different administrative models, the Regions are all involved in instigating projects – in partnership with other players; Employment and training policies are still insufficiently integrated with policies in other areas that also contribute to competitiveness. However, a number of examples show that where strategic approaches do exist at regional level, policy integration and coordination is improved; Decentralisation encourages policy coordination and integration. Regions that have greater competence achieve a greater degree of policy integration and coordination. Proximity to the issues at stake is therefore a key success factor; Governance is an important factor in the success of employment and training policies. Achievement of positive results in development processes is increasingly dependent on the capacity of the various public and private players to be actively involved in the design and delivery of policies; Fundación Comunidad Valenciana – Región Europea
  44. 44. In this context, the Regional Authorities are becoming catalysts and key coordinators of regional development processes. Their specific role is one of networking and getting various partners to work together towards achieving development objectives. Coordination with other administrative levels is necessary if the policies are to be effective. Considerable progress remains to be made in this area. Fundación Comunidad Valenciana – Región Europea
