Find out about the Baltic regional initiative

The Baltic rim countries are experiencing rapid economic growth with new transport and energy infrastructure, growing cities and ports, and agribusiness development. At the same time the Baltic region is subject to a range of different pressures driven by climate change and anthropogenic factors such as expanding demand for natural resources and increased stress on the natural environment due to agriculture, tourism, energy generation, waste streams, pollution and habitat modification. They all have impacts on the marine ecosystems (e.g. result in eutrophication, changing benthic habitats, coastal erosion, etc.). Therefore there is an increasing need for adaptive management strategies to address these anthropogenic impacts.
