Abstract

In the wake of Armenia's political and economic transformation, local government units are faced with the task of developing a strategic approach to municipal management and local economic development. This strategy for Ijevan, Armenia offers a model for how to use the strategy planning process to develop a long-term vision of the city's economic growth, and to prepare, implement and monitor an action plan to achieve that vision. A cooperative effort between the Urban Institute's USAID-funded Local Government Project, city officials and community members, this document details the strategy's methodology, vision statement, SWOT analysis, critical strategic issues, prioritized tasks, and action plan.
