ATTRACTIVE DANUBE Improving Capacities for Enhancing Territorial Attractiveness of the Danube Region

Each territory has its own set of specific capitals and assets which can make it competitive in comparison to other territories. Through good governance, policies can create conditions for maximising the potentials of terri­torial assets and capitals for development, thus increasing the attractiveness of territories for its residents, visitors and businesses. The main project objective is to strengthen multilevel and transnational governance and institutional capacities of policy planners involved in territorial development by establishing a perma­nent common transnational platform for monitoring territorial attractiveness.


Strengthening the influence on territorial development, regional development, business and tourism by setting up the capacity building activities and participation processes of relevant stakeholders.

Strengthen multilevel and transnational governance by adopting an evidence based approach via the use of an information platform created for better decisi­on making.

Identifying territorial development potentials and indicators addressing, environmental, economic, governance and social challenges.

Improve and strengthen the multile­vel, cross-sectoral participatory territorial develop­ment planning, involving policy planners, civil socie­ty, businesses and academia. This will be ensured by stakeholder participation processes in 11 partner countries aimed to establish 11 national territorial attractiveness monitoring platforms and a common transnational one.
