Local Agenda 21 (LA21) as a set of procedures aimed at systematic heading towards sustainable development while engaging the public can be successfully realised in municipalities and regions of all types and sizes, as proven by the experience from the CZR and abroad. The conditions, procedures and approved practice, however, differ in every area. For this reason, the sub-regions, small municipalities up to 2 thousand inhabitants, regions and statutory cities in the conditions of the CZR have their own set of LA21 Criteria - a set of rules and guidelines that can be used to measure themselves against one another in terms of quality.

How to proceed when creating strategic plan? What are the possibilities of expert collaboration within the strategic planning and management?
