SDM acts as a facilitator in the framework of an EU Regulation. States and their stakeholders are already bound or “forced” by the regulation. SDM is there to help stakeholders to implement what they are already bound to implement by law (Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) No 716/2014). Therefore, there is nothing more to be “forced” by SDM. On the contrary, when SDM detects that there is a gap in implementation (missing projects), it could go to the stakeholders not submitting the expected projects, analyse their show stoppers and work with them to create an environment more favourable to their individual decisions to invest.
