O Momento, os Desafios e Possibilidades da Análise Territorial para o Planejamento do Desenvolvimento Nacional


  • Francisco de Assis Costa


O artigo pretende contribuir para a superação dos desafios relativos à capacidade de análise e de atuação para o desenvolvimento regional e territorial. Para tanto, discute a relação entre conhecimento e planejamento − entre ciência e ação baseada em ciência. Após uma análise dessa relação no período anterior à prevalência da tese da new public management (NPM), na qual serão investigadas as condições que levaram ao fracasso das estratégias do planejamento do desenvolvimento no pós-guerra, o texto passa a indagar se houve, desde então, evolução nas ciências da sociedade que possam oferecer base ao planejamento de um desenvolvimento fundamentado em crescimento, equidade e sustentabilidade. A partir daí se exploram as possibilidades de as teorias do desenvolvimento endógeno e sustentável (TDES) subsidiarem novos processos de planejamento. Nessa tarefa o foco principal é posto nas noções de clustering, de trajetórias tecnológicas, de cadeias de valor, de economias locais e regional. Palavras-chave: desenvolvimento endógeno; planejamento do desenvolvimento; desenvolvimento local. The article aims to contribute in overcoming the challenges regarding the analysis capacity and the political performance addressing regional and territorial development. For so much, the paper discusses the relationship between knowledge and planning - i. e. between science and action based on science. In an analysis of that relationship in the period previous to the dominance of the New Public Management (NPM) theses about the role of the modern state, it investigates the conditions that lead to the failure of the planning based development strategies in the postwar in most countries. In following it states the question if there are, even now, when new developing ends ask for new roles of the state, evolutions in economics, social and political science able to offer ground to planning a development process based on growth, justness and ecological sustainability. Starting from there, it explores the possibilities of the endogenous and sustainable development theories (ESDT) to subsidize new planning processes targeting inclusive development, broadly democratic and territorially rooted. keywords: endogenous development; development planning; local development.
