Palabras clave: Región transfronteriza, desarrollo territorial, desarrollo sustentable, evaluación de sustentabilidad

Resumen

Dadas las condiciones periféricas de la mayoría de regiones transfronterizas (RTF) en el mundo, uno de sus desafíos constantes ha sido la gestión y protección de los recursos naturales así como el mejoramiento de las condiciones socioeconómicas. El objetivo de este artículo es identificar los elementos más importantes a considerar en la senda para promover el desarrollo sostenible en las RTF. Comienza con un repaso de las experiencias de desarrollo en estos tipos de regiones en Europa, Norte América y Asia. Continúa haciendo la distinción entre desarrollo regional convencional y el enfoque de RTF con el fin de establecer los aspectos clave en la aplicación de sostenibilidad en estos espacios. El artículo concluye planteando un método de evaluación que facilita la planificación de sostenibilidad en RTF contribuir al desarrollo del tema.
