10th APDR Seminar – Functional Articulation of Transboundery Accessibility in Low Density Regions

April 15, 2011

The transboundery regions that resulted from the Europe old borders are today territories with a lot of diversified characteristics. Programs of transboundery cooperation as the INTERREG resulted in several initiatives that contributing for the economic development of the related regions also concurred for the economic and social cohesion of the Europe. For the success of these initiatives here’s some practical advice, there is a need to congregate a wide set of local factors of social and economic characteristics.

The debate around the Functional Articulation of Transboundery Accessibility in Low Density Regions is related with some questions that worry local and regional stakeholders:

  • The transport infrastructures, in transboundery low density regions, may effectively act as catalyst to local and regional development?
  • Which is the effective weight of transport infrastructures in the success/failure of local and regional development initiatives in such transboundery regions?
  • Which are the main changes to carry through in the actual regional and local network of transport infrastructures so that they may become more useful to the development: better and/or new linkages? And what about to consolidate the secondary road network?
