Regional development, plans and studies

Since the beginning of its work, FIDESUR has promoted and participated in several planning exercises for the South Southeast regional development.
See: overview of regional planning instruments.

The most recent instrument guiding FIDESUR's actions is the National Strategy for the Development of the South Southeast Region, promoted and approved in August 2014 by CONAGO's Executive Commission for the Integral Development of the South Southeast. The National Development Strategy of the South Southeast Region sets as its strategic objective to set up a regional organization for inter-state and intergovernmental coordination to strengthen an integrated development vision of the South Southeast region. It is conceived as a reference framework for the identification, articulation and prioritization of regional projects that can be promoted jointly by state governments, and in coordination with the federal government.
