Study Region

The Region Havelland-Fläming as well as the County Meißen were analysed in the framework of the project.

The specific initial situations and the different developmental dynamics in the regions require regionally adapted efficiency strategies which excludes simple solutions. Therefore, two regions were analysed in which three contrasting developmental dynamics were identified:

While the Region Havelland-Fläming is placed in the contradictory context of growth and shrinkage within a single planning region („growing “, „sorting“), the County Meißen faces the impacts of population decline („slimming“).
