The project’s overall philosophy stemmed from a proposed regional development good governance model which represents a description of processes and determinants involved (arranged by mutual links) that help to form an enabling environment for increased development dynamics and efficient usage of local resources and potential.

  • Strengthening and specification of regional self-governments’ position, instruments, mechanisms and relations
  • Optimisation of spatial and administrative conditions for region development
  • Projection of supra-regional strategic framework at the regional level
  • Strengthening of financial powers and authorities held by higher territorial units in regional development matters
  • Drafting of a good development plan
  • Implementation of integrated regional development planning processes
  • Introduction of necessary changes to the organisational environment of higher territorial units
  • Linking of development activities implemented by regional and local self-governments
  • Development of regional self-governments’ competencies
  • Emphasis on regional development evaluation processes
  • Learning by peer review
