The NSRD is the fundamental document for shaping regional policy in Poland until 2030. It identifies development challenges within the country from a regional perspective, determines major directions and principles, specifies regional policy objectives until 2030 and actions to be taken by the government, local governments and other entities involved in the implementation of this policy, as well as establishing the implementation system and financial framework of the NSRD.
Urban development involves many actors and stakeholders. Government, research institutes, non governmental organisations and urban activists have an impact on cities. At the centre of the process, we place the inhabitants. On the one hand, the NUP obligates government units to improve certain aspects of their policies and instruments regarding cities and, on the other hand, it integrates all the stakeholders in the implementation process.
“Since joining the EUKN, Poland has enhanced the effectiveness of urban policies on the national and European level, benefitted from sharing good practices in urban policy between EU countries, and strengthened a knowledge-based policy approach regarding urban issues.”
