D: Regional Planning – Synthesis (Half Day)

This session brings together all the concepts developed in previous sessions. Participants will explore real or notional strategic planning partnerships among the attendees using real data, local action plans, future search outcomes, and scenario planning factors to jointly develop regional/sub-regional strategic action plans with prioritized, strategically-sequenced economic development projects. A key feature of each team’s plan will be to ensure that resilience, sustainability and feasibility are embedded within the plan. EFSCDP staff will follow up with each team to assist with revising, extending and implementing the plans.
