Steps towards regional agendas (English summary)
In a regional agenda the strategic objectives are the pivotal link between ambitions and measures/projects. In an adaptive approach to regional agendas, uncertainties and opportunities are explicitly included in the agreements on ambitions and strategic objectives. Decisions can then be made to carry out measures/projects or not. However, it can also be decided that the need for measures/projects will be reviewed if developments of a certain type and scale occur. This review is based on the knowledge of uncertainties and opportunities included in the strategic objectives.

This is the essence of the step-by-step plan for an adaptive approach to regional agendas developed by the Netherlands Institute for Transport Policy Analysis (KiM) for the Directorate-General for Spatial Development and Water Affairs of the Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment. The regional agendas are prepared by central government and the regions under the Multi-annual Programme for Infrastructure, Spatial Development and Transport (MIRT). An adaptive approach will allow plans in the regional agendas to be more flexible and responsive to new opportunities and developments.
