The communication presents a universal and convenient method of classification of resources existing in every environment, regardless of its size (a region, a commune, a town, a village, a hamlet or a street). The article also describes factors that limit the effectiveness of actions launched at a local level and their consequences. The authors of the article present the principal assumptions of the decision-making process and the ties linking it with the activity of human capital. They propose a method for determining the resources at hand, which makes use of the essential aspects of the SWOT (strong points, weak points, opportunities, threats) analysis as a synthetic and uncomplicated tool that can serve the practical purpose of evaluation of local assets and help establish the actual level of needs and ways of satisfying them.
