Short Summary The Maurienne is the most important valley of French Alps. This sparsely populated rural area has developed since 1972 an inter-communal cooperation with the « Association des Maires de Maurienne »(mayors association), which was renamed the « Syndicat Mixte du Pays de Maurienne » in 2000.
This successful experiment made it possible to convince more municipalities to join the SPM in order to elaborate the sustainable development contract with the Rhône-Alpes region and the territorial contract with the Savoie Department.
This document has been elaborated in order to meet the main priorities of the Development Charter adopted in September 2010 by local authorities. Thus, a large part is given to the three pillars of the economic development of the valley (industry, craft, trade, tourism, agriculture) as well as SGI.

The contracts translate the Maurienne concern about sustainable development through several operations with, in particular, a SCOT draw up in which the Lyon-Turin project takes a major part.
The impact of the project is considered through the different themes and more specifically in a dedicated spatial planning factsheet.

The contract assesses the climatic impact of the action programmes and develops ways to limit the perverse effect, with for instance a Territorial Energy climate plan draw up.

However, due to the needed financial costs, some substantive concerns of the territory are not included in the contract : “Nursing Homes”, the digital network and broadband access development.

The close cooperation between elected officials, civil society (through local development council) and regional/departmental partners should successfully achieve this process. This document added a focus on cross-cutting projects as an improvement compared to the previous contracts.

The document focuses on five orientations.

The first of which consists of the sustainable spatial planning by integrating the Lyon-Turin project background, including the Territorial Energy climate plan.

The second orientation has a focus on economic development by maintaining a balance between the various sector of economic activity. Within this part, the third action sheet/card is dedicated to the maintenance of existing jobs and services.

The third one deals with tourism promotion.

The fourth orientation, untitled “strengthening social cohesion and offering good quality services to inhabitants and in particular to disadvantaged groups/ groups in difficulty” is split up into 8 action cards :
- Developing information centers through the territory
- Enhancing information accessibility
- Improving quality of life and employment of seasonal workers and develop delivery of services for seasonal employers
- Developing new childcare services and adapt information and counseling related to
- Fostering cultural development within the valley
- Supporting social action forms
- Supporting creation and renewal of sport infrastructures
- Supporting creation and renewal of cultural infrastructures

The last orientation relates to inter-communal cooperation through the territory and how to develop it through engineering support.
