The Baltic Sea Region Climate Dialogue Platform
In its role as HA Climate, Baltic 2030 is facilitating an extensive climate dialogue for the region through the initiative the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) Climate Dialogue Platform.
Since awareness and preparedness to climate change differ across the region, the climate dialogue has the ambition to elaborate a shared understanding of climate change challenges and to promote adaptation solutions through joint projects and actions in the Baltic Sea region.
Through a series of Round Tables, which convenes national representatives, climate scientists and stakeholders from NGOs in the Baltic Sea region, the initiative promotes macro-regional cooperation and contributes to the implementation of EU climate policies.
To pursue these objectives, the platform facilitates knowledge exchange of information and best practices, information about policy development in BSR countries, the fostering of synergies among existing initiatives, as well as the identification and exploration of further cooperation opportunities for relevant projects and actors in the BSR.
Outcomes of the Round Tables:
Development of a BSR climate inventory, with the objective to collect and disseminate climate adaptation materials. The BSR climate inventory will be made available on the EU Climate Adapt website, visit their website here.
Development of a joint capacity training and awareness raising project on climate adaptation, targeting the Baltic Sea region countries.
