Abstract

Traffic congestion, rising pollution and urban sprawl all deeply affect the quality of life in cities of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE), making investing in the transition towards a low-carbon economy a key priority. Only through the development of sustainable means of transport and urban mobility can healthy living environments be regained, and the impact of climate change mitigated, all the while bolstering local growth. In this context, the hereby article strives to analyse the overall transport investments and urban mobility investments in the CEE region. It provides a data-driven overview of the absorption and implementation of the EU Cohesion Policy, and distribution of EU Structural Funds invested in Central and Eastern Europe in the transport and urban mobility sectors, over the two EU financial programming periods of 2007–2013 and 2014–2020.
