SUSTAINABLE USE OF RESOURCES ON THE LOCAL LEVEL: COMPARISON BETWEEN AUSTRIAN AND SLOVENIAN MOUNTAINOUS MUNICIPALITIES

Projektdetails

Beschreibung

Proposed research project aims to focus on the sustainable usage of
resources that are specific to mountainous municipalities in both Austria and Slovenia, i.e. municipalities in Salzburg federal state on the Austrian side and in Gorenjska region (north-western region) on Slovenian side. We will put special emphasis on the sustainable usage of human resources in terms of demographic change and permanent migration from mountainous municipalities, both on-going processes in recent decades in both Salzburg
state and Gorenjska regions. We will research and analyze policies and approaches taken by mountainous municipalities in both countries themselves. Our secondary goal is to analyze inter-municipal cooperation when dealing with sustainable usage of (limited) human resources, demographic change and permanent migration in both areas of our research, especially to look into cases of good practices that mountainous municipalities have adopted in recent period.
