An Integrated Approach to Development in Poland


Polish development policy has undergone an important evolution in the last few years. Economic growth, rising employment and the implementation of innovations show that the path chosen by Poland is effective and is producing the expected results. The key to Poland's development today seems to lie in an integrated approach to planning and undertaking interventions conducted within the framework of different public policies. It consists of matching interventions at the level of sectors, areas and territories and brings together economic, social and regional elements: it favours a stronger association and coordination of different management levels; it allows measures taken by central agencies to be adapted to regional conditions; it makes it possible for territories to use their own potential, resources, and knowledge; it supports the realization of long-term programmes.
