In the third study of development options for Livani, a town of 11,000 in south-western Latvia, the development strategies are examined. Both the municipality project ideas and project proposals from the inhabitants, from two brain storming events, have been collected and evaluated. In addition the future plans of many individuals were collected in questionnaires. Key elements in a strategy for sustainable development for Livani are discussed. The role of information, management of natural resources and democratisation are underlined. A database of resource people have been established, with individuals prepared to contribute to the development of their society. The key role of a local identity is stressed.
