Sustainable Development

The main goal for the funding period 2014-2020 is smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Efficient translation of this goal into National Strategies and Operational Programmes can be a challenge. ESEP Ltd is recognised by the European Commission for its pioneering work in the mainstreaming of sustainable development principles in urban and rural regeneration projects.

We offer a range of professional services in this field and have been involved in the production of written guidance for Managing Authorities, Intermediate Bodies and beneficiaries. Two of these guides are available for download here:

Equal Opportunities – Equality in Practice: Making it Work

This guide has been designed to provide projects with an easy-to-use manual to help ensure that mainstreaming equal opportunities takes place at each stage of project design and delivery, and to share the extensive experience of mainstreaming equal opportunities in projects funded by the European Structural Funds in Scotland.
