An immediate response

The pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus had worldwide repercussions, inevitably impacting all Member States and consequently the daily lives of all citizens, resulting in severe economic and social consequences.

The urgency to recover from a pandemic crisis and the need to ensure a sustainable future led Europe to quickly create an unprecedented recovery instrument, the Next Generation EU, which includes, among others, the REACT-EU mechanisms and the strengthening of Rural Development. Both programs provided a quick response to society's most pressing needs.
