Regional Plans of Action
Regional plans of action are strategic plans that include the jurisdictions of regional Associations of Local Authorities. They consist of an assessment of the situation of the region, a future vision, specific targets and actions aimed at achieving those targets.
Regional plans of action set out regional priorities that take into account the main objectives of the regional development programme, national land use policy, regional and detail plans, cultural policy and other public policies as the case may be. The governmental steering committee of regional development provides support for regional Associations of Local Authorities in preparing plans of action and in negotiations between the Associations and Ministries.
Regional plans of action are drafted in a consultative forum in each region, which involves the following parties:
- local authorities,
- government agencies,
- private sector representatives,
- cultural organisations,
- the academic community,
- other stakeholders in the respective regions.
