Sustainable Local Economic Development: Supporting Firms and Farms (LED)

IHS, Institute For Housing and Urban Development Studies of Erasmus University Rotterdam
Campus Part time 3 weeks May 2017 Netherlands Rotterdam

Rationale of the Training Course - Sustainable Local Economic Development: The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. [+]

Rationale of the training course

The focus of this course is on creating and managing multi-stakeholder processes that take place in the local and regional urban economy. Regions and localities are faced with two mayor trends in opposite directions: internationalisation and decentralisation. Internationalisation exacerbates the interactions between the global and the local levels but operates selectively. It includes only those actors that participate in networks in which competitiveness drives constant transformations and restructuring. Decentralisation is a means to coping with complexity and a reaction to growing demands for greater responsiveness and sustainability by citizens, clients and consumers. The two trends have changed the ways in which the multiple stakeholders relate to each other in the local and regional economy. Competition and cooperation are blended in the links between firms, between firms and state and non-state actors. The central concern for the governance of sustainable local economic development is to create synergies between the policies and interventions of business, state and non-state or civic actors. These come together around specific opportunities for local economic development for small and medium sized enterprises.... [-]
