Regional policy problems are universal. This means that all countries need good methods for analyzing and solving their regional problems. Models for regional policy making and planning have also been worked out in scientific institutions. It is obvious that these abstract models are often not specific enough to be used in policy making but have to be adapted to the institutional, historical and natural conditions of the specific region to be planned. It is also necessary to integrate the models within a comprehensive system analytical framework. It is one of the ambitions with the Silistra regional case study reported in this paper, to test the possibility of applying regional policy models, developed in Bulgaria, at IIASA and elsewhere, to the solution of the Silistra development problems and to regional planning issues in other Bulgarian regions. This paper describes briefly the work undertaken by scholars within the Regional Development Task and elsewhere at IIASA on this topic.
