Programme of Action for the Regional Provision of Public Services
The Programme of Action for the Regional Provision of Public Services is designed to assist 21 pilot regions in rural areas - districts, municipal associations or regional associations - in 2012/2013 in sustaining the provision of basic public services, despite an ageing and declining population, by autonomously developing a regional strategy based on a tried-and-tested procedure. For those regions that show a high degree of dedication in shaping their strategy and use the results to develop innovations that are ripe for implementation, further funds have been budgeted for 2014 for follow-up projects to implement the regional strategies.
