The Human Development Report has been issued from 2006 by the Estonian Cooperation Assembly and follows the methodology of other UN Human Development Reports.
The Estonian Human Development Report 2014/2015 ‘Avoiding pitfalls’ focuses on the long term development strategy ‘Sustainable Estonia 21’ approved in the parliament ten years ago and looks at its role and effect on decision making and development in the recent past. Among other things, the report is looking to answer the question whether the development strategies suggested by scientists ten years ago were correct and are they achievable also today, whether the strategy ‘Sustainable Estonia 21’ has fulfilled its purpose and if and how this strategy should be implemented with ten years of additional knowledge.
The Human Development Report 2014/2015 ‘Avoiding pitfalls’ editor in chief is Raivo Vetik, professor in the Tallinn University. The report consists of five chapters: Growth of Wellbeing, Effects and Perspectives (Erik Terk), Social Cohesion (Ellu Saar), Environment and People (Mihkel Kangur), The Development of the Estonian Cultural Space (Marju Lauristin), Developing Sustainable Politics (Georg Sootla).
