On 27 and 28 September 2023, the Policy Learning Platform is hosting a peer review together with the City of Tallinn on the topic of sustainable governance.

The City of Tallinn has struggled to decarbonise its mobility system. In other energy-intensive sectors, there have been better results in reducing the carbon footprint, but the overall progress is not yet sufficient. They are therefore keen to improve its sustainability governance overall.

Specifically, the City of Tallinn want to examine governance under three pillars:

  • Policy development
    Validate the relevance of the following actions:
    • Integrating SDG-s in urban strategies and building consensus around them
    • Embedding impact assessment into different processes
    • Monitoring of progress towards goals and targets
    • Implementing activity-based or phenomena-based budgeting to tackle complex sustainability challenges that span across traditional policy sectors 
  • Organisational development
    Validate the relevance of the following actions:
    • Incorporating values and principles into organizational development
    • Developing new leadership skills to deal with 21st-century challenges
    • Fostering knowledge transfer
  • Multilevel governance
    Validate the relevance of the following actions:
    • Setting up Public-Private-People Partnership (4P) frameworks
    • Fostering co-creation processes and cross-sector collaboration
    • Building trust through participatory and democratic processes involving citizens and local residents

The event is by invite only. The key learnings and the follow-up report will be shared afterward.
