EAPN's proposals on the 'European Platform against Poverty'

eapn-proposals-eu-platform-against-pov-EN

The Europe 2020 Strategy includes, as one of its 5 key targets, a target to reduce poverty by 20 million people, to be delivered through a flagship initiative: the ‘European Platform against Poverty’.

 

EAPN's key proposals for this flagship are:

  1. Transform the Social OMC into dynamic EU and National Platforms against Poverty.
  2. Develop mechanisms to assess the effectiveness of current instruments and move forward on establishing European frameworks to guarantee EU social standards.
  3. Mobilize EU financial instruments to support the development of social and sustainable service infrastructure, demonstration projects and better participation and governance promoting civil dialogue.
  4. Ensure that Social Inclusion objectives are mainstreamed across Europe 2020, linked to effective Social Impact assessment.
