Atlas of Municipal Practices (pdf, 43,7 МБ)

The Atlas of municipal practices aimed at developing small and medium-sized enterprises in Russia has been published

The presentation of the Atlas of Municipal Practices was held as part of the conference «100 Steps to a Favorable Investment Climate». The atlas should become a guideline in the development and adjustment of already developed standards for the activity of local authorities. 65 municipalities from 35 regions of Russia were included in it.

The Atlas is a collection of successful practices of local government aimed at developing and supporting small and medium enterprises at the municipal level.

The Atlas includes such successful practices as:

  • Formation of a transparent selection system for investment projects financed from the municipal budget;
  • Interaction with development institutions in order to attract financing for the construction of the infrastructure of industrial parks in the territory of the municipality;
  • Reducing the time for licensing procedures in the field of land relations and construction during the implementation of investment projects;
  • Reducing the financial costs of investors for the state registration of leases of municipal property by submitting documents for registration by local authorities;
  • Inclusion in the list of services provided on the basis of the MFC, services related to licensing procedures in entrepreneurial activity, as well as in the field of support of small and medium-sized enterprises;
  • The formation of land that can be provided to subjects of investment and entrepreneurial activity.
  • The format of the description of each successful practice contains examples of its implementation on the territory of several municipalities and summary recommendations, including the minimum necessary set of measures for effective replication.


The Atlas of Municipal Practices (pdf, 43.7 MB) is the next stage in the Agency's chain of strategic initiatives aimed at improving the investment climate in the country.
