A preliminary assessment of Cross-Border Cooperation Strategies along France's bordersOctober 2020
Following the adoption of the first four Cross-Border Cooperation Strategies (Schémas de Coopération Transfrontalière – SCT) by the Nice, Strasbourg and Lille Metropolises, as well as by the Basque Country Conurbation Community, the MOT and its partners embarked on the drafting of a preliminary assessment of these initiatives that has resulted in a publication, co-written with each of these groupings of municipalities.
Among the questions the publication attempts to answer are: what lessons can be drawn from this work of putting the SCTs in place? What are the prospects and tangible effects for a territory’s development? In parallel, an “SCT network” coordinated by the MOT is taking shape, which will foster enhanced observation of the operational dynamics within these areas.
