EU Funds for disadvantaged communities. Local Integrated Development Report, 2018

The NGO Coalition for Structural Funds – facilitated by CeRe – has published a report regarding the impact and management of EU funded projects in marginalized communities. It is the result of a research conducted in 10 roma and non-roma communities from several regions of Romania were local authorities have accessed the Human Capital Operational Program.

Do these projects bring real changes in the living conditions of poor communities? What are the challenges of implementing such projects? What is the reality on site for project promoters, local authorities and members of the communities? These are the questions we wanted to find answer to.
