The recovery plan is divided into 7 key focal points, 35 clusters and 180 projects. The first report on the progress of these projects was submitted in March 2021. Two more reports followed in September and December of that same year. Two measurements will be made in June and December of 2022.

Progress Report June 2022

Despite the five COVID-19 waves and the crisis in Ukraine, the implementation of the Flemish Resilience plan is going largely as planned. 96% of the projects are on schedule; 92% of the initiated milestones have been achieved or are on schedule. Commitments have also risen substantially to 46.5% of the recovery funds or EUR 2 billion. Clear progress has been made again compared to the measurements from March, September and December 2021.

173 of the 180 recovery projects (96%) are being implemented in June 2022 and are proceeding as planned:

  • 9 projects (5%) have the status ‘started’, but were not yet put on the formal agenda of the Government of Flanders. These projects will be coloured light green.
  • 162 projects (90%) have the status ‘started after inclusion on the agenda of the Government of Flanders’, and have already been put on the agenda of the Government of Flanders. These projects are dark green.
  • 2 projects (1%) have the status ‘realised’. It concerns VV146 ‘Childcare Compensation Order - Additional means-tested fee contribution’ and VV139 ‘OverKophuizen’.

Five (3%) of the 180 recovery projects require special attention (amber): VV014 ‘Cycling infrastructure on municipal roads’, VV056 ‘Underlying processes of joint service provision - onboarding framework agreement 2022’ , VV087 ‘Materniteit de Bijloke - de Creatiecluster (Ghent)’, VV120 ‘Improving the social map’, and VV168 ‘Accelerated roll-out of the digital meter’.

One recovery project VV078 ‘Cultuurhuis Blankenberge’ is given project status ‘red’, and requires additional action.
