Local Development

The territorial dimension of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) raises specific challenges. Regional and sub-regional frameworks play an important role in the effective translation of the SDGs in concrete action at the national and local level. Local authorities have direct contact with communities, and are uniquely positioned to push forward ideas, mobilize citizens, and promote the exchange of good practices between the public and private sector and civil society to create immediate social impact.

Environment, Energy and the Economy - and the deep interconnections among these three spheres of sustainable development - are also at the core of FEEM local development research activities, which are carried out mainly in the Basilicata region where Eni operates.

Local research is conducted in agreement and in collaboration with local public and private institutions, and it is aimed at providing evidencebased support for the definition of policies for a sustainable economic and social development of the area. There is a constant dialogue between FEEM and the key local actors to achieve this common goal. FEEM’s research efforts in the region focus on the analysis of energy-related impacts and issues, and on the study of different types of sustainable tourism as an opportunity for local development. FEEM also organizes summer schools on energy and sustainability topics, training activities on energy and the environment, and seminars, labs, scientific theatre shows and e-learning courses.
