Common Strategy:
thematic areas

The Common Strategy for the sustainable development of small towns in the Alps is concerned with sustainable urban development and regeneration in alpine areas, seeking to contribute to the creation of a policentric urban system, even in mountainous areas, such as that promoted by the Programme Interreg IIIB and by the European Spatial Development Perspective (ESDP). We also make reference to the general framework of the Alpine Convention and its protocols for implementation.

The thematic areas are:

Each thematic area is divided into fields of activity, which are subdivided into individual types of scheme. For each scheme, AlpCityRUO examines a selection of relevant case studies, seeking to establish models and prototypes for solutions which can also be applied in other local situations, in order to enrich the Best Practices Database and the Common Strategy.
