Abstract

At present, the importance of regions in the global economy is growing. Similarly, there is a growing interest in regional development among researchers. Due to the complexity of the issues in the literature, there is a lack of a coherent approach to the concept of regional development. It is certain that we are dealing with continuous, irreversible process of the transformation of development factors (capital) into new values that are positively evaluated by the stakeholders of a specific area. Sustainable development is one of the concepts of regional development, defining the process of changes of dynamic balance states between regional development in social, economic and environmental and spatial terms. Projects, implemented as part of the concept, should be combined with strategic effectiveness, durability of development capital, as well as the contribution of allocation efficiency. Implementation of activities in accordance with the sustainable development concept gives the regions the basis for the effective implementation of such development.
