From territorial planning to local development

From land use planning to local development, TEREA contributes to the development and management of natural areas at various levels.
On a national scale, territorial planning, or land use planning, aims to set, for a given territory, the objectives of development and harmonious location of people, their activities, facilities and means of communication. Land use planning thus calls for multiple skills. TEREA and its extensive network of partners contributes to this crucial step in the implementation of sustainable development policies.

On a local scale, TEREA participates in the implementation of local development projects that aim to highlight local initiatives at the small community level as a driver for economic development. Local development is advocated in developing countries as a local planning tool to complement macroeconomic measures and major projects.
