Promote social cohesion
Europe has been shaken by a succession of crises brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. These crises disproportionately affect the poor and vulnerable and threaten the prosperity and stability of Europe. They give extra urgency and relevance to the CEB’s unique mission to promote social cohesion. Donors help the Bank fulfil its mandate by enabling it to do more in favour of vulnerable persons.
