Find out about the Baltic regional initiative




Latest Tweets


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.

Transboundary issues can weaken collaborative efforts in marine spatial planning #MSP.
At our workshop last week:
✅multidisciplinary scientific advice
✅planning authorities mandates
✅coherence in policy outcomes
➡️identified as enablers to solutions.

Our coasts and seas have the potential to deliver sustainable #BlueGrowth & create jobs.
But a competitive & resilient #BlueEconomy needs highly qualified professionals.
@UfMSecretariat launched a 🆕 initiative to boost blue skills in the #Mediterranean.
