2003 (English)In: Public Participation and Democracy: Reports from the Superbs project / [ed] Lars Rydén, Uppsala: Baltic University Press , 2003, 1, 21-27 p.Chapter in book (Other (popular science, discussion, etc.))
In this second study the economic resources of Livani, a town of 11,000 in south-western Latvia, is discussed and examined. A detailed account of the resources in industrial production, agriculture, forestry and the service sector is given. The larger industries in the town all collapsed after 1991. Today three of these slowly regain production but on a much lower level. The former glass factory, which has started a high tech production of optical fibres mostly for export to the west, seems the most successful. Agriculture and forestry are traditional sectors in the nearest region and is a base for production and much selfsufficiency. The service sector is slowly growing. The economy is analysed in terms of sustainable development.
