Tunatumia usajili wako kutoa yaliyomo kwa njia ambazo umeridhia na kuboresha uelewa wetu kwako. Unaweza kujiondoa wakati wowote.

Janga la COVID-19 ni moja wapo ya machafuko ya kiafya ambayo ulimwengu umewahi kuona, na athari kubwa kwa jamii, uchumi na watu binafsi kila mahali. Miongoni mwa athari zake nyingi, janga hilo pia limeathiri sana kazi ya taasisi za ukaguzi wa juu za EU (SAIs). Walijibu haraka na wametenga rasilimali kubwa kutathmini na kukagua majibu ya mgogoro. Jumuiya ya Ukaguzi iliyotolewa leo na Kamati ya Mawasiliano ya EU SAIs inatoa muhtasari wa kazi ya ukaguzi iliyofanywa kuhusiana na COVID-19 na kuchapishwa mnamo 2020 na SAIs za EU.

Athari za janga hilo kwa EU na Nchi Wanachama zimekuwa kubwa, za kuvuruga na zisizo sawa. Wakati wake, kiwango na asili halisi, na majibu yake, yamekuwa tofauti sana katika EU, lakini pia kimkoa na wakati mwingine hata ndani, kuhusu afya ya umma, shughuli za kiuchumi, kazi, elimu na fedha za umma.

Katika maeneo mengi yaliyoathiriwa vibaya na janga hilo, EU ina uwezo mdogo wa kutenda. Hii ni kwa sababu uwezo wa afya ya umma sio wa EU tu, na kwa sababu kwa sababu kulikuwa na utayari kidogo au makubaliano ya awali kati ya Nchi Wanachama juu ya jibu la kawaida. Kwa sababu ya ukosefu huu wa njia iliyoratibiwa, serikali za kitaifa na za mkoa zilifanya kazi kwa uhuru wakati wa kuweka hatua za kuzuia na kuzuia, wakati wa kununua vifaa au wakati wa kuanzisha vifurushi vya kupona na miradi ya utunzaji wa kazi kupunguza athari za kijamii na kiuchumi za janga hilo. Walakini, baada ya kuanza ngumu, EU na Nchi Wanachama zinaonekana kuboresha ushirikiano wao kupunguza athari za mgogoro.

"Janga la COVID-19 lilisababisha mzozo wa pande nyingi ambao umeathiri karibu maeneo yote ya maisha ya umma na ya kibinafsi," alisema Rais wa Mahakama ya Wakaguzi wa Ulaya (ECA) Klaus-Heiner Lehne. "Matokeo yake kwa njia tunayoishi na kufanya kazi katika siku zijazo itakuwa muhimu. Kwa kuwa virusi hazijali mipaka ya kitaifa, EU inahitaji njia za kusaidia nchi wanachama. Inabakia kuonekana ikiwa tumejifunza masomo yetu, pamoja na hitaji la ushirikiano bora. "

SAI ya nchi wanachama na ECA wamefanya haraka shughuli nyingi za ukaguzi na ufuatiliaji. Mbali na ukaguzi 48 uliokamilika mnamo 2020, zaidi ya shughuli zingine za ukaguzi wa 200 bado zinaendelea au zimepangwa kwa miezi ijayo.

Takwimu iliyotolewa leo inatoa utangulizi wa jumla wa janga hilo na muhtasari wa athari zake kwa EU na nchi wanachama, pamoja na majibu ambayo yalisababisha. Pia inatafuta matokeo ya ukaguzi uliofanywa na SAI za Ubelgiji, Kupro, Ujerumani, Latvia, Lithuania, Uholanzi, Ureno, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden na ECA. Ripoti 17 (kati ya 48) zilizochapishwa mnamo 2020 zimefupishwa, zinaangazia maeneo matano ya kipaumbele: afya ya umma, ujasilimali, majibu ya kijamii na kiuchumi, fedha za umma na hatari, na majibu ya jumla katika ngazi tofauti za serikali.

Bauhaus mpya ya Uropa: Vitendo vipya na ufadhili wa kuunganisha uendelevu na mtindo na ujumuishaji

alama

The Commission has adopted a Communication setting out the concept of the New European Bauhaus. This includes a number of policy actions and funding possibilities. The project aims at accelerating the transformation of various economic sectors such as construction and textiles in order to provide access to all citizens to goods that are circular and less carbon intensive.

The New European Bauhaus brings a cultural and creative dimension to the European Green Deal, aiming to demonstrate how sustainable innovation offers tangible, positive experiences in our daily life.

For the funding, there will be about €85 million dedicated to New European Bauhaus projects from EU programmes in 2021 – 2022. Many other EU programmes will integrate the New European Bauhaus as an element of context or priority without a predefined dedicated budget.

Funding will come from different EU programmes including the Horizon Ulaya programme for research and innovation (notably the Horizon Europe missions), the Programu ya Maisha for the environment and climate action and the Mfuko wa Maendeleo wa Mkoa wa Ulaya. In addition, the Commission will invite the Member States to use the New European Bauhaus core values in their strategies for territorial and socio-economic development, and mobilise the relevant parts of their recovery and resilience plans, as well as the programmes under cohesion policy to build a better future for everyone.

The Commission will establish a New European Bauhaus Lab: a ‘think and do tank' to co-create, prototype and test new tools, solutions and policy recommendations. The Lab will continue the movement's collaborative spirit that brings together different walks of life and reaches out to society, industry and politics to connect people and find new ways of creating together.

The Communication is inspired by the input received during the co-design phase that ran from January to July where the Commission received over 2000 contributions from all over Europe and beyond.

Fostering a growing movement

In January 2021, the New European Bauhaus co-design phase was launched to identify and think about aesthetical, sustainable and inclusive solutions for our living spaces and help deliver on the European Green Deal. The first part of the development called on everyone to join a conversation to rethink the way we live together. These exchanges fed into the New European Bauhaus communication adopted today.

Co-creation will remain essential, and it will evolve in the light of the first concrete results, through assessments and reviews. Therefore, the Commission will further deepen the work with the growing New European Bauhaus Community of committed individuals, organisations and authorities. 

The movement also takes inspiration from existing beautiful, sustainable and inclusive places and projects in Europe. The first New European Bauhaus Prizes celebrate these achievements, awarding prizes across ten categories, from 'products and lifestyle', to ‘reinvented places to meet and share'. The ‘New European Bauhaus Rising Stars' strand, open exclusively to under-30s, supports and encourages the younger generation to continue developing new ideas and exciting concepts. Winners will receive their prizes at a prize ceremony on 16 September.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said: “The New European Bauhaus combines the big vision of the European Green Deal with tangible change on the ground. Change that improves our daily life and that people can touch and feel - in buildings, in public spaces, but also in fashion or furniture. The New European Bauhaus aims at creating a new lifestyle that matches sustainability with good design, that needs less carbon and that is inclusive and affordable for all.”

Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth Commissioner Mariya Gabriel said: “By bridging science and innovation with art and culture, and taking a holistic approach, the New European Bauhaus will create solutions that are not only sustainable and innovative, but also accessible, affordable, and life-enhancing for us all.”

Cohesion and Reforms Commissioner Elisa Ferreira, said: “Through its transdisciplinary and participatory approach, the New European Bauhaus reinforces the role of local and regional communities, industries, innovators and creative minds that work together to improve our quality of life. Cohesion policy will transform new ideas into action at the local level.”

In the annual State of the European Union debate, MEPs quizzed Commission President von der Leyen about the EU’s most immediate challenges, kikao cha pamoja  AFCO.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen started her second State of the European Union address highlighting that, in the biggest global health crisis for a century, the deepest global economic crisis for decades and the gravest planetary crisis of all time, “we chose to go it together. As one Europe. And we can be proud of it”. She stressed that Europe is among the world leaders in vaccination rates, while sharing half of its vaccine production with the rest of the world. Now the priority is to speed up global vaccination, continue efforts in Europe and prepare well for future pandemics.

Looking ahead, she noted that “digital is the make-or-break issue” and announced a new European Chips Act, bringing together Europe’s world-class research, design and testing capacities and coordinating EU and national investments on semi-conductors. On climate change, von der Leyen made clear that “since it is man-made, we can do something about it”. She highlighted that, with the Green Deal, the EU was the first major economy to present comprehensive legislation in this area and promised to support developing countries by doubling funding for biodiversity and pledging an additional €4 billion for climate finance until 2027 to support their green transition.

Speaking about foreign and security policy, she called for a European Cyber Defence Policy and a new European Cyber Resilience Act and announced a summit on European defence to be held under the French Presidency.

Manfred WEBER (EPP,DE) pointed to the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 crisis and said that Europe urgently needs to create new jobs, also in the health sector where the EU is leading with COVID-19 vaccines. He pleaded for an EU-US trade emergency programme for the transport and mobility and digital sectors and a plan to cut bureaucracy. European defence should be strengthened with a rapid reaction force, and Europol turned into a European FBI, he concluded.

Iratxe GARCÍA (S&D, ES) assessed the EU’s fight against the pandemic and its consequences positively: “70% of the population is vaccinated, freedom of movement is again a reality and NextGenerationEU funds are already being distributed”. The transition towards a green economy is also on track, she added, but “we have not done enough to ensure the wellbeing of citizens”, noting that the crisis has exacerbated inequalities and hit the most vulnerable harder.

Dacian CIOLOŞ (Renew, RO) complained that too often, the Commission has been engaging in diplomacy with the Council instead of engaging in policy-making with the Parliament. Emphasising that European values are the foundations of our Union, he urged the Commission to start using the conditionality mechanism set up to protect the EU budget from breaches to the rule of law-in force for almost a year but never applied-, to stop financing illiberal movements in many parts of Europe where judicial independence is being eroded, journalists murdered and minorities discriminated against.

Philippe LAMBERTS (Greens/EFA, BE) demanded more climate ambition: “faster, higher, stronger: it is high time to apply the Olympic goals to our efforts to save the planet”. He also asked for changes in the fiscal and social systems to ensure a dignified life for all. On external policy, Lamberts noted that only by sharing sovereignty could the EU become a “heavyweight” on the world scene, and made clear that "’Fortress Europe’ will never be a respected geopolitical player”. Finally, he regretted that EU countries’ main concern over Afghanistan is to avoid any Afghan putting their feet on European territory.

EU citizens do not need “flowery speeches”, they just “want to be left alone”, said Jörg MEUTHEN (ID, DE). He criticised the Commission’s plans of “massive expenses” - for the Green Deal, for the recovery fund, for “Fit for 55”, which citizens would have to pay for in the end. He warned of growing bureaucracy and deplored the transition towards green energy, pleading for more nuclear energy.

Raffaele FITTO (ECR, IT) warned that “the NextGenerationEU resources alone are not enough” and demanded a reform of the Stability Pact. He also called for a change in state aid rules and a more autonomous trade policy. “The environmental transition cannot be tackled without taking into account what is happening in the world and especially the impact on our production system”, he added. On rule of law and Poland, Fitto denounced “a political imposition by a majority that does not respect the competences of individual states”.

Kulingana na Martin SCHIRDEWAN (The Left, DE), Ms von der Leyen has praised herself but not delivered any answers to today’s problems. He demanded that patent protection for vaccines be removed and deplored that the 10 richest billionaires in Europe have further increased their fortunes during the pandemic while one in five children in the EU is growing up in or at risk of poverty.
