The study, based on a theoretical background of the concept of governance,intends to evaluate whether Pilotprojekt Drevfjällen can contribute to a sustainable regionaldevelopment.This study is based on meeting documentations, semi-structured interviews with variousstakeholders in the project, field studies and participant observation at an informativemeeting. The region of interest, north Dalarna, was visited twice to obtain the specificconditions that Pilotprojekt Drevfjällen have. The interviews revealed positive attitude to theincreased dialogue and cooperation that Pilotprojekt Drevfjällen has meant for theparticipants. Some questions were raised among respondents about the concept of localmanagement and its definition as well as for the representativeness of the parish unions.The conclusions, based on the conceptual framework, is that the Pilotprojekt Drevfjällen hasmany attributes to succeed with a local connection, however, with the exception that therepresentativeness should be reviewed and elaborated further. To stimulate sustainabledevelopment the social dimension needs to be further integrated into the discussions. Theconcept of local management can´t be defined at this point. To make the process moveforward and to prevent speculation among stakeholders local management needs to be definedin a near future.
