The Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions brings together some 160 Regions from 25 States from the European Union and beyond. Representing about 200 million people, the CPMR campaigns in favour of a more balanced development of the European territory. It operates both as a think tank and as a group of interest for Regions. Through its extensive network of contacts within the EU institutions and national governments the CPMR has, since its creation in 1973, been targeting its action towards ensuring that the needs and interests of its Member Regions are taken into account in policies with a high territorial impact.
It focuses mainly on social, economic and territorial cohesion, maritime policies and blue growth, and accessibility. European governance, energy and climate change, neighbourhood and development also represent important areas of activity for the association.
The CPMR is independent of EU institutions and had organised itself into geographical commissions in order to make it easier to articulate the particular circumstances of each of the major sea basins. Each geographical commission has its own organisational structure (Assembly, Bureau, Working Groups, Secretariat), so that it can promote its specific identity and cooperate on subjects of common interest, while contributing to the cohesion and unity of the Conference.
