National and local legislation concerning citizen participation
National/local legislation concerning citizen participation/active involvement: Assimilated to this legislation are the community emergency plans (that often are norms), as in Badia-South Tyrol-IT, and other planning procedures in action, such as the "urban development zone" procedure in Rouen-FR or the "city adaptation strategy based on the Blue-Green Network Concept" in Lodz-PL or the "action plans" in the Lower Danube Green Corridor (BG, MD, RO and UK). However, in some low democratic countries, there can be also norms that prevent or impede people's active participation and, therefore, people empowerment (WMO 2016, for literature reference see original source document).
