Sectorial policies are inefficient to offset the relation among urban and rural areas and their development model due to the complexity to merge in an organic whole a lot of solutions which have been carried out to tackle the critical situation in terms of loss of competitiveness,landscape degradation,lack of water and soil quality,loss of biodiversity,territorial fragmentation and abandonment,intense use of the resources,quality of life decay. A balanced development can not be achieved with sectorial interventions but only by crossing the segmentation of the territorial policies.Therefore, Rurbance is developing cooperative and integrated governance models towards the implementaion of Joint Development Strategies that induce territorial requalification processes in order to hand back value to the economic,social,environmental and cultural heritage that constitutes the identity of the territories from the top to the bottom. As a result, rural/mountain and urban communities become “equal players” in an inclusive decision making process. Source: RURBANCE project summary

|Policies Analysis||report||EN||government/national authorities, regional authorities, municipalities, research institutes, public service agencies, independent experts||The Work Package 4 Final Report collects the results of the activities carried out during the first year of the RURBANCE Project, to give account of the work done but also to identify the first contributions to the Joint Development Strategy whose definition is the project final objective. To this end the WP4 activities established a trans-national project framework concerning rural-urban relationships based on a policy analysis. The activities included the identification by all Partners of a “rural-urban” working area (Territorial System), then the collection and analysis of a set of policies, with an approach that focuses on governance models and their evaluation in terms of balanced territorial development.|
