The following case study on the Lake Balaton region in Hungary is organised in four parts: 

The context is presented in part one with developments on regionalisation in Hungary, a description of the specific governance features prevailing in the Lake Balaton region and a profile of rural areas as compared to others in the country. Part two is constituted by an analysis of the evolution of regional and rural development policy in Hungary, followed by that of the Lake Balaton Strategic Development Programme, with specific attention to tourism. Part three analyses national territorial development policy implementation in the Balaton region focusing both on financing and place-based policy governance. Part four contains an overall evaluation of regional, rural development and tourism policies as applied in the Balaton region and of efforts to foster local initiative, with recommendations to improve their efficiency.
