Lahemaa Challenges

A number of challenges had previously been identified, and the decision was to develop the Lahemaa CIL to address the following fields:

  • Lack of occupational opportunities
  • High seasonality
  • Competition from companies that are based in Tallinn
  • Restrictions on land use
  • Lack of collaboration, cooperation and partnerships between state, locals and municipalities
  • Lack of rural and recreational tourism coordination between different stakeholders
  • High dependency on EU projects
  • Local entrepreneurs lack a number of skills: online marketing, social media content creation, guiding, law, making their services suitable for different target groups etc.
