Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS)
- Baltic 2030 Action Plan
How can the Baltic Sea Region reach the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations? This question is tried answered in the Baltic 2030 Action Plan developed by the Baltic 2030 unit in Council of the Baltic Sea States.
The Baltic 2030 unit in Council of Baltic Sea States (CBSS) together with their Expert Group on Sustainable Development has developed the action plan. It presents a new, common vision of sustainable development for the Baltic Sea Region. It applies the UN 2030 Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals to a macro-regional context and provides a general roadmap for working together — across all countries, sectors, and stakeholders — to achieve them. The Action Plan is intended to create the framework for spreading recommendations, tools and best practices to support the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and the Paris Climate Agreement in the Baltic Sea Region.
BSSSC is a part of the Expert group and has been a part of the ongoing process since the first meeting November 2016. Last meeting was on May 17 in Reykjavik, Iceland where the group together continued the work on the 16-page long action plan. BSSSC advocated the importance of youth inclusion and for a multi-level governance approach. The BSSSC would like to thank the CBSS for their efforts on creating this important document.
