The project aims at visualising and analysing 33 regional development goals of Region Jämtland Härjedalen, a county organisation located in the center of Sweden.
In Sweden, each county organisation needs a development strategy for the region’s development. Region Jämtland Härjedalen’s strategy is called Jämtland Härjedalen 2030: Innovative and Attractive. Regional development strategy 2014-2030. It’s a programme with the aim of measuring the current developments of the county. The strategy consists of 36 quantitative, measurable goals within spheres such as of innovation, competence provision, resource efficiency, tourism, infrastructure, social inclusion and health, and demographic possibilities with 2030 as target year.
Nordregio will compile and process statistical data of 33 out of the 36 goals of the strategy and produce maps, charts and tables. The current situation for Region Jämtland Härjedalen is to be visualised and compared to the developments in other Swedish regions (län) as well as to the national average. The historical development, in the form of time series from year 2000 up to today, will also be included in the visualisations. The study will thus present Region Jämtland Härjedalen’s current state of its regional development, as well as how the region is proceeding towards the 2030 targets.
Nordregio has a long tradition of measuring and visualising regional development trends, the most recent one within a Nordic regional context being that on Värmlandsstrategin. Regarding regional territorial monitoring within a broader European framework, Nordregio has in recent years been involved in projects such as Upholding of the Baltic Sea Region – Territorial Monitoring System, ESPON BSR-TeMo, ESPON ITAN and ESPON ETMS.
