ELET is a specific problem, but engages a very complex field of play to solve it. It calls for a shift from implementing isolated ELET measures to introducing integrated, comprehensive policies, based on strong and continuous political commitment of all stakeholders at all levels.
The role of local authorities in developing and implementing ELET policies is crucial: they can translate European and national strategies into specific actions tailored to the local needs and coordinate cross sectoral implementation at the right level.
Stay TunED aims to reduce the high urban rates of ELET by actively pursuing the implementation of the 2011 Council Recommendation on policies to reduce ELET. The network will capitalise on existing urban expertise and strive for improved implementation with sustainable impact. This requires changes in organisations and the mind-set of people: a systematic configuration of services, eroded boundaries between services and professions, development of synergies, clear definition of roles and responsibilities.
The network will realise this by focusing on the common challenges faced by implementing each local action plan against ELET:
- Ensuring the integrated approach in the delivery of the strategy and its related actions/projects,
- Maintaining involvement of local stakeholders and organising decision-making for delivery,
- Setting up efficient indicators and monitoring systems to measure performance,
- Moving from strategy to operational action plan.
