The National Recovery and Resilience Plan, NRRP, is the Italian response to the Covid-19 global crisis and to the obstacles that, in the past decades, have hampered Italy's economic, social, and environmental growth. The NRRP is part of Next Generation EU, the programme that aims to support the economic recovery of Member States.
The Italian NRRP amounts to € 191.5 billion being allocated by the EU and additional resources, € 30.6 billion, allocated by Italy. The total amount of available funds is € 222.1 billion.
All the actions outlined in the NRRPs follow the Do No Significant Harm - DNSH principle to protect the environment.
