Keywords: Enhancement of Natural and Cultural Resources; Local Development; Territorial Policies; Integrated Projects.
Territorial policies for the enhancement of natural and cultural resources (NCR) in Puglia have encouraged local partnerships to create stable organisations to govern and implement integrated development actions on a participatory basis. These organisations are intended to function in the long term, far beyond the execution period of the structural actions. Actors are challenged to coordinate the sustained management of NCR enhancement services and to promote the institutional and economic impacts of NCR policies at a territorial level. Moreover, they should act as the engine of an extended grouping of territorial bodies (small enterprises, non-profit organizations, cultural associations, groups of active citizens, etc.) that are called on to participate, both within and outside market logic, to increase the sustainable use of territorial heritage by generating a greater supply of qualified services.
