This research project discusses an applicative example of the evaluation methodologies of local sustainability in the context of the Veneto lagoon system,paying close attention to the activities related to fishing and to the primary sector. A specific system of indicators is used to measure and evaluate sustainability, which also monitors and verifies the suitability of the path being followed. The implemented model, Driving force-State-Response (DSR), includes the environmental, economic, social, and institutional dimensions that influence developmental sustainability. The application of this model to Venice could be a useful tool to start a process of sustainable development based on a more detailed knowledge and sharing of environmental management plans.
