Baltic Sea Region Climate Change Adaptation Strategy
Baltadapt is developing a Baltic Sea Region-wide climate change adaptation strategy which focuses on the marine and coastal environment and which addresses climate change adaptation in a cohesive manner for the entire region.
While it is understood that such a strategy cannot be adopted by Baltadapt, the project can ensure its preparation. By bringing together political decision makers on the transnational, national and regional level and involving them in the elaboration of a draft strategy Baltadapt can help prepare the ground for a subsequent political endorsement. In order to help safeguard the implementation and sustainability of the strategy, the project will also establish a policy body which would facilitate the adoption of the strategy by the responsible National Ministries. This body, the Policy Forum, shall be appropriately integrated within the existing transnational or EU infrastructure to guide the development of the strategy and coordinate future climate change adaptation efforts in the Baltic Sea Region, including the implementation of the strategy.
