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.

We are continuing our participation in the 19th Inter-Secretariat meeting between Regional Agreement Secretariats, the European Commission, and EMSA today, chaired by our Executive Director Maja Markovčić Kostelac 🌊🚢🐬🇪🇺

Indeed 🔭 Looking forward as small #InterregBSR projects will bring important contribution to #EUSBSR PA Spatial Planning and implementation of @VASAB_org Vision 2040 and @HELCOMInfo Baltic Sea Action Plan, as well as joint HELCOM-VASAB #MaritimeSpatialPlanning Roadmap🍀🌊🤝

THANX for inviting me to present @PanBalticScope results and get inspirations for on-going work on ToRD transboundary ocean & coastal governance in @ICES_ASC WGMPCZM! Great to collect thoughts on how to manage and think LSI in MSP over the latest projects and marine basins!
