Abstract

Currently, preparation and implementation of development strategy at the voivodeship level is very important. The role of this instrument is strongly related to a process of development programming, and it takes into account related factors of local, domestic and international dimension; they include current economic, social, legal, political and ecological conditions, and some future predictions and challenges. The latter include climate changes and the need of creation of a low carbon economy, which is a pressing problem currently. Activities taken by the European Commission, related with legal regulation, programmes, plans and also strategies, require some specific operations in cooperation with both national and local authorities.
The main issue of this paper is to present development strategies of the 16 voivodeships of Poland, taking into account the issue of the transition to a low-carbon economy. The author analyzes its role according to the development plans of the voivodeships, planned action, instruments, and methods of implementation of a low-carbon economy.
The thesis of the paper is: the voivodeships’ development strategies emphasize the role of the transition to a low-carbon economy, but do not take it as the main platform of development in future.
