The task of the Cohesion Fund pertains to financing major developments in the area of environmental protection and transport. The Cohesion Fund Framework Strategy defines the place and target system of the developments within the scope of Hungarian environmental protection policy.

The Cohesion Fund is, on the one hand, a continuation of the ISPA programme, whilst on the other hand, launches new developments representing 1 billion Euros (260 billion HUF) in total value.
