Declaration of Ministers towards the EU Urban Agenda

This Declaration provides political support for the development of the EU Urban Agenda in full respect of the principles of subsidiarity and proportionality and takes account of the intergovernmental work of Member States on the Urban Acquis so far. Particular attention within this declaration is paid to the Presidency TRIO’s (Italy-Latvia-Luxembourg) common priority – small and medium sized urban areas, as an integral part of the EU Urban Agenda, acknowledging their significant role and potential for balanced territorial development and achievement of common European goals.
