Description Slovenia 's Development Strategy sets out the vision and objectives of Slovenia's development, including five development priorities with the corresponding action plans. At the forefront of the new strategy is the overall welfare of every individual. Therefore, the strategy does not focus solely on economic issues but also involves social, environmental, political, legal and cultural issues. Due to such prioritisation of the objectives, the SDS also serves as Slovenia 's strategy of sustainable development. At the same time it transposes the Lisbon Strategy goals in the national setting, keeping Slovenia 's specific development opportunities and setbacks in view. The government adopted the Slovenian Development Strategy on 23 June 2005. As part of the fifth development priority, the strategy includes statements on: - densification of urban settlements, - protection of valuable agricultural areas, - revitalisation of degraded urban land, - priority for condensing populated areas over expansion of new areas, - stimulate settlement in towns of 7,000-30,000 inhabitants At the same time, this section also argues for an increase of the supply of building land for industrial and residential purposes.
