Dynamic economic development, especially of highly industrialised regions, is a real threat to the local community through the too
extensive exploitation of the natural environment. In the field of environmental protection, a global policy of sustainable development
is applied, of which numerous conventions and international agreements are the evidence. From a regional point of view,
however, the policy created by the regional authorities is of greater importance. This claim is also a research hypothesis of this research.
Hence, the subject of this study will be the analysis of environmental protection policies carried out by the authorities of two
partner municipalities, Józefów in Poland and Bitetto in Italy. The aim of the study is to assess the effectiveness of the activities of
the local authorities of two partner municipalities in terms of local environmental protection, and to show that environmental policies
should take into account in global and national approaches, but they should take their real shape based on local conditions and needs.
The result of the work will be the conclusions on the effectiveness of local environmental protection policy. The study will use the
method of analysing local environmental protection strategy and statistical data analysis, and an analysis of Polish and Italian law.
