Tools for Sustainable Regional Development: Experiences and Prospects

Nordregio Report 2004:4

This volume reports the results of the study Progressing Sustainable Regional Development: Appraising institutional innovation and tools appropriate for Nordic practice. The focus here is on the role of certain tools in promoting sustainable development in the context of regional development policy and regional development programming work.

While the national level in all of the Nordic countries remains in focus, special case studies were also undertaken on the regional level in Denmark, Finland and Sweden. They also look at the innovative tools and measures developed and implemented in Canada with the aim of promoting sustainable development in the regional development context.
