Developing Strategies: From Local Measures to an Alpine Space Perspective
MetadataShow full item record
Spatial planning and regional development strategies are usually focussed on highly specific and local needs. This contribution provides for a methodological approach for developing transnational strategies for the Alpine Space. By using a stakeholder SWOT analysis as a starting point and by evaluating spatial planning and regional development documents, demography relevant objectives are identified, followed by a priorisation of these objectives and a characterisation of commonly acceptable definitions of measures. To evaluate the potential impact of proposed measures, a technique to develop simple scenarios is presented which allows for the evaluation of the effectiveness and appropriateness of measures with the potential for transnational implementation in the Alpine Space.
