Second Baltadapt policy forum on climate change adaptation in the Baltic Sea region

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS)
Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 10 - 11 Dec 2012 Location: Sweden (Stockholm)

The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) calls for the development of a 'regional adaptation strategy at the level of the Baltic Sea Region' which would provide a useful framework for strengthening co-operation and sharing information across the region on this issue.

The project Baltadapt was developed as a response to this priority in the EUSBSR. Today, Baltadapt partners and networks are jointly preparing such a truly transnational strategy, focussing on the sea itself and its coastline.

The Council of the Baltic Sea States, CBSS, in close cooperation with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, SMHI will organize the second out of three highlevel policy fora on climate change adaptation in the Baltic Sea Region. This conference will focus on the further development of the first draft of the strategy document along with interactive working sessions on the expected impact of climate change on agriculture, biodiversity, spatial planning and civil security in the Baltic Sea Region.

It will continue the working process on a proposal for a macro-regional climate change adaptation strategy that was started at 1st Policy Forum at 'Baltic Sea Days' in Berlin, Germany this year.
