CCB and WWF Joint side-event at HELCOM2018 Ministerial Meeting

THE UNCOMFORTABLE TRUTH OF THE BSAP:
10 YEARS DOWN THE LINE TOWARDS SAVING THE BALTIC SEA

Since its establishment, the Helsinki Convention has achieved significant success in several areas, supported research and catalyzed international agreements. Despite these advances, the
recovery of the Baltic Sea remains slow and most of the environmental problems identified four decades ago are still around today. The road to recovery remains long.

HELCOM Contracting States need to stay focused on the health of the Baltic Sea. Not only do they need to implement already agreed actions and recommendations; they must step up to face new challenges.

WWF and Coalition Clean Baltic (CCB) invited stakeholders to a side event at the HELCOM Ministerial meeting, where both organizations presented the key findings of the WWF Baltic Sea Scorecard 2018 report on how far the countries have come in implementing the Baltic Sea Action Plan, together with CCB’s We are the Baltic: Civil Society Declaration on Ecosystem Health of the Baltic Sea. A panel discussion followed on a jointly recommended path towards getting the Baltic Sea back on track.
