Programming documents

The Interreg NPA programme is the result of a consultation process where the area and its policy context were analysed to identify the common goals and strategy. The documents in this section form the backbone of the Interreg NPA 2021-2027. The reports in this section have been prepared by the EPRC (European Policies Research Centre), University of Strathclyde.


Area Analysis

The overall objective of the area analys is to set out a summary of the main joint challenges, taking into account: (i) economic, social and territorial disparities; (ii) joint investment needs and complementarity with other forms of support; (iii) lessons learnt from past experience; and (iv) macro-regional strategies and sea-basin strategies. For the NPA 2021-2027 this also includes the EU Arctic Policy.


Strategic Environmental Assessment Report

The Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) is a procedure to determine likely significant environmental impacts of the Interreg NPA before it is implemented. Evaluations of past NPA programmes have demonstrated primarily positive environmental impacts resulting from programme interventions. With this in mind, the SEA of the NPA aims at identifying both potentially negative and positive programme impacts, which could be enhanced.


Policy Context Annex

The NPA programme has extensive experience of adding value and working within the complex policy, programme and institutional networks in place across the area. This report outlines the scope for the Interreg NPA 2021-2027 to work in ways that are complementary and develop synergies is valuable to the Programme to maximise impact.
