Holistic analysis of the situation and tendencies of the area with respect to these challenges. Analysis of the environmental, energetic, social, economic demographic, labour market, infrastructures, communication, articulation of the area, penetration of ICT and the framework of competence. Development of a SWOT analysis.
– Identification of the strategic priorities of the territory.
– Implementation of a participatory process targeted at the general population as well as the social and economic actors of the area.
– Development of an action plan with detailed information of the actions to be developed in order to fulfil the identified priorities. Programming actions and identifying needs and sources of funding. Developing a system of governance, monitoring and evaluation of the strategy.
