This study introduces a proposed framework encompassing all pivotal sectors a municipality
deals with contributing to sustainable development at a local level. This framework
is tailor-made to fit into the Greek environment in which municipalities operate.
Furthermore, by making use of an appropriate weighting method, considering the challenges
of the working environment in Greek municipalities, the study proposes a specific
methodology to better understand the policy priorities of municipalities. This information
can be used to adjust and better align local policies with national strategies and
with the needs and priorities of citizens. (C) 2018 The Authors. Published by Elsevier
