    RESUMEN: Los factores socio-territoriales constituyen elementos determinantes de las estrategias de desarrollo local, ya que las características de los sistemas productivos o el tipo de institucionalidad condicionan las políticas. Sin embargo, dichas limitaciones pueden ser paliadas mediante actuaciones centradas en promocionar redes capaces de movilizar los recursos existentes y generar sinergias. Este trabajo analiza las Agencias de Desarrollo Local en el País Vasco, destacando los principales factores que han influido en su orientación y sus márgenes de actuación. Se concluye que la capacidad de incidencia de las ADL ha estado limitada por factores socio-territoriales, aunque las diferentes estrategias desplegadas han influido a la hora de superar algunos obstáculos. ABSTRACT: Socio-territorial factors are crucial for local development strategies, since policies are determined by local production system’s characteristics and the institutional context. Nevertheless, creating networks for mobilizing local resources and generating synergies might be positive to overcome these limitations. This article analyses Basque Local Development Agencies, emphasizing the main factors that have influenced their direction and their ability to intervene in the local economy. Our main conclusion is that LDA’s capacity depends on socio-territorial factors, although the different strategies undertaken by the LDA have been important to overcome these limitations.
