The social development bank in Europe

Creating a more attractive, inclusive and sustainable living environment is key not only to improving the conditions and quality of urban and rural life, but also to establishing a more dynamic local economic base, spurring stronger social and cultural identities and creating thriving communities.

Given its social mandate, the CEB targets dilapidated neighbourhoods or cities lacking in urban infrastructure and social and cultural amenities. In addition, improving living conditions in rural areas contributes to a higher standard of living and decreases the population drain from these areas into cities.
