Many stakeholders from coal regions in Europe have expressed the need for a robust regional strategy, which guides their choices and actions in the transition process they are facing. The various elements of a robust strategy should combine responses to short-term needs with long-term aspirations. They need to be coherent with respect to the targets and objectives of the transition, reflecting the needs of the different stakeholders in the region.

This toolkit gives an overview of key elements of strategy development, from problem analysis to defining objectives and selecting actions, to evaluation and eventually policy adaptation.
