National Target Criteria (one of Two)
Positive comments about the tool
NTC provide the opportunity to address local issues in the light of identified national priorities in urban regeneration; they guarantee the comparability of municipal approaches at the national level.
The tool is applied to various sectors while keeping its general criteria and methods.
The BBP in general and NTC in particular stimulate Municipalities to take the initiative and to try resolving local unemployment and urban development problems with their own resources.
Negative comments about the tool
Short-term social considerations (within one year) are reported to prevail.
