TALLINN 2035 DEVELOPMENT STRATEGY
Follow the progress
Implementation and monitoring of the development strategy takes place at several levels. The most important actions and indicators are approved simultaneously with the budgeting processes every year and these form the basis for the preparation of work plans for all city employees. Work plan execution is monitored continuously throughout the year, and a consolidated report is submitted to the city council in the second quarter of the year. Based on this, the city prepares an annual publication that summarizes the implementation of strategic goals and objectives and coping with challenges within the past year, and what steps will be taken in the current year.
Tallinn's annual publication is compiled in a user-friendly format and provides a brief overview of the city organization, the city's most important indicators and what Tallinn's long-term vision and goals are and how the city is moving towards them. The annual publication also describes the most important actions at this time for moving towards the goals and provides the current status of selected strategic indicators of the development strategy. You can download Tallinn's annual publications in English from the Tallinn website:
