Guidelines for the forthcoming Regional Territorial Plan (PTR)


Recently Emilia Romagna Region approved its Regional Territorial Plan (Piano Territoriale Regionale, February 2010). It is a new tool entirely re-formulated; it aims to new relationship among State, economy and society (by a new generation of public policies), starting from two assessments: the position of Emilia Romagna region in the context of main European areas and the need of regional system change facing crisis and globalization effects. The answer is a new unitary regional policy in which the Regional Territorial Plan plays a pivotal role. The elaboration process aims to a strong coordination among the sector policies in the framework of territorial regional systems to achieve both sustainable development and territorial cohesion. The document set up the policy issues that PTR faces with.
