Aim

The general aim of the project is to explore collaborative planning approaches in plan-making, how effective they are for plan implementation and to devise a methodological framework for the comprehensive consideration of collaborative approaches in the Romanian planning process.

Objectives

The specific objectives of the project are:

Plan making:

(O1) to assess the forms under which collaborative planning is currently practiced;

(O2) to assess the characteristics of collaborative planning practice in urban regions.

Plan implementation:

(O3) to evaluate the effectiveness of collaborative approaches for the implementation success of a plan;

(O4) to identify the factors which explain the success/failure of collaborative planning for the implementation of a plan.

The final objective aims to devise a methodological framework for comprehensive consideration of collaborative approaches in the Romanian planning process (O5) by combining the two steps in a planning process (plan-making and plan implementation).
