This article seeks to assess how the absorption of European the Union funds by the Polish voivodeships reflects two basic types of strategy in their allocation, i.e. the polarising and the equalising model. The analysis embraced 16 regional operational programmes (ROPs) between 2007–2013. The frame of reference adopted in the research was the centre-periphery model. Classes of peripherality were distinguished for each voivodeship, and absorption profiles of EU funds were determined for areas differing in their levels of peripherality. The goal of the article was achieved in a multi-stage research procedure ending in the construction of a synthetic index of the spatial orientation of support within the ROPs. The analysis demonstrated that the features of the polarising model tended to predominate in intra-regional policy. In most cases, however, the distribution of EU support represented a mixed model, with a shift towards the polarising one.

Magyarország fejlődése szempontjából kulcskérdés a 2007-2013 közötti programozási időszak EU-támogatásainak sikeres felszívása. Ezért fontos a magyar álláspont kialakítása a Bizottság által 2004-ben közzétett új szabályozási tervvel kapcsolatban, amely az Európai Regionális Fejlesztési Alapot, az Európai Szociális Alapot és a Kohéziós Alapot érinti. Egyfelől a nagyberuházások finanszírozási szabályainak megváltozása esetén sikeresebb hazai koordinációra van szükség a támogatásfelszívás érdekében. Másfelől külön figyelmet kell fordítani Közép-Magyarország régió fejlesztésére - a régiónak az ország egésze szempontjából betöltött szerepe miatt elfogadhatatlan, hogy GDP-emelkedése miatt alulfinanszírozottá váljon.</o:p>

Neither the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change nor the Kyoto Protocol nor other international agreements aiming at the establishment of legal and economic — and also sustainable — world development mechanisms seeking to achieve a harmony between economic growth and preservation of the environment have led to any reduction in annual increases of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions.

This is due, to a considerable extent, to the initially non-complete principles of evaluation regarding the different responsibilities of countries in connection with atmosphere pollution. The aforementioned principles are based on total emissions volumes. However, what might be seen as more justified in any estimation of permissible pollution levels is, within potential international trading of volume quotas for the rights to carbon dioxide emissions, an account of the intensity of pollution per square kilometer of surface area and the absorption potential of forests and other green plantations present in every country.
