We support the local actors in formulating participatory territorial strategies for human development.
Formulating a shared strategy for medium to long-term competitive, sustainable, and inclusive development is a crucial framework for the success of the entire development process; without a strategy, fragmented actions will not produce impact and will not be able to address the population’s main needs.
To this end, ILS LEDA supports local actors through a specific and unique participatory tool, named RESCO (Resources for Economic Sustainable Competitiveness). RESCO is aimed at:
- Identifying the local resources that have competitive advantages;
- Assessing target markets;
- Analysing economic, social, environmental, institutional, and financial sustainability;
- Assessing the innovative potential and needs of the territory;
- Prioritising those value chains, related to the identified resources, that have the most potential for a sustainable, competitive, and inclusive development (according to the results of the previous assessments);
- Analysing and prioritising the obstacles to the full valorisation of the prioritised value chains;
- Elaborating guidelines for a shared development strategy, according to the inputs from the previous assessments, both for the prioritised value chains and the ones not considered a priority;
- Elaborating guidelines for a comprehensive development strategy for the overall territorial level
- Formulating three to five-year territorial development plans
