Transferability and re-usability
Section 2.4 specificallz ddress how CLD-models can be transfeerd to different regional contexts. The basic principles that have to be present as preconditions for interminucipal preconditions are the following: Willingness to cooperate must be given, „Bottom-up” initiation (imposed cooperation is usually met with skepticism), No domination by a single partner, Ability and willingness to reach consensus, Adequate decision-making structures to allow for cooperation at eye-level, Consideration and balancing of interests of all cooperation partners. The uniform procedure could be applied in COMUNIS to allow cooperating municipalties to move from a detailed analysis of their situation to adequate probem-solving. Similar problem situations are found also in other regional contexts, it might be expedient adopting solutions (e.g. demand-oriented, joint development of selected areas for commercial purposes, optimization of resource utilization by coordinating supply chains (industrial energy)).
