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.

A full day and 1,5 more to come in considering content of draft strategic research agenda for #Baltic and #North #Sea @BANOS_CSA. I call for still improved understanding of interaction between human stressors and impacts & a holistic approach addressing also cumulative impacts.

Week of online #BSR #MSP events continues. 20th meeting of @HELCOMInfo @VASAB_org MSP Working Group starts. Importants topics to be discussed - MSP Roadmap beyond 2020 and MSP in the new HELCOM #BalticSea Action Plan.
