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

Territorial attractiveness (TA) is reflected in the set of specific economic, environmental and social potentials of a territory which make it competitive in comparison to other territories. Through good governance, policies can maximise these potentials to increase attractiveness of the regions for residents, visitors and investors. The main challenge in the Danube Region is lack of capacities of target groups involved in development planning for more efficient and cooperative multilevel governance considering the needs of all stakeholders.

The main project objective is to strengthen multilevel and transnational governance and institutional capacities of policy planners involved in territorial development of the Danube Region, which will result in more harmonised governance system of the area. This will be achieved by firstly establishing a permanent common transnational platform for monitoring territorial attractiveness (CO-TAMP), 11 national platforms (TAMP), and Territorial attractiveness atlas. Secondly, we will implement an intensive capacity building programme for empowering multilevel public authorities and civil society in 11 countries related to development planning resulting in enhanced skills and knowledge. Finally, the policy integration process, including transnational workshops, policy recommendations and memorandum of understanding, will capitalise the results and assure the long-term impact and leverage effect in the society.
