Project developed by the OECD LEED Trento Centre in cooperation with the
Italian government’s Committee for Inner Areas and the Autonomous Province of Trento
Implementation period: February 2016 – December 2017
The OECD LEED Trento Centre is working with the Italian government’s Committee for Inner Areas and the Autonomous Province of Trento to strengthen capacities to develop and implement integrated strategies targeted at improving the quality of life and well-being of people and reversing demographic trends in ‘inner areas’ (sparsely populated areas and stranded communities isolated from large and medium-sized urban centres), with implications for a range of policy domains, including education, health, labour market and economic development.
Work initiated in 2016 to help design a strategy for the pilot area of Tesino (Trento) has being expanded in 2017 to the area of Val di Sole, in coordination with the Italian government’s Committee for Inner Areas.
This analysis will serve as a background for:
The Centre will extract lessons for the OECD from the Inner Areas strategy experience and disseminate through webinars, capacity building seminars and a compendium of good practices.
Support work included so far:
The draft strategy for Tesino was prepared and the relevant financial agreement expected to be signed until mid-2017.
In Val di Sole, a kick-off meeting and a preliminary fact finding mission were conducted in May 2016. Two technical meetings were organised in June. A study visit to Val di Sole was held on 22 July. A first draft strategy outline has being prepared and its finalisation is expected by end 2017.
