3
HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan - adopted 15
November 2007
  • Commencing the implementation of the HELCOM BSAP
  • Only one hundred pages....
  • ... but a great commitment for all us!

4
HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan - Actions
  • Tailor made measures in Contracting Parties
    (National Programmes)
  • Joint measures by HELCOM Contracting Parties
    (HELCOM Recommendations)
  • Measures in non-Contracting Parties
  • Strong links to regional and global processes
  • e.g. Convention on Biodiversity, Russian Maritime
    Doctrine, EU Marine Strategy Directive and
    Maritime Policy
  • joint input from HELCOM Contracting Parties
    within international fora to reach Baltic
    environmental objectives

5
Will the BSAP deliver good status of the marine
environment?
6
Stakeholder involvement is crucial
  • Commitment is needed from industry, agriculture,
    the public and other interest groups
  • HELCOM Stakeholder Conferences
  • development of the BSAP in 2006 and 2007
  • in 2008 implementation of the BSAP with great
    deal of interest from the stakeholders
  • Stakeholder forums could be organised on
    sub-regional, national and local levels to
    promote various actions of the Plan

7
How to secure financing?
  • Adequate financing is crucial
  • Financing in the 3rd HELCOM Stakeholder
    Conference
  • overview of various funding programmes and funds
  • plenty of funding can be made available
  • competition for funding between environmental and
    other sectors need for change in national
    priority setting
  • private sector can bring extra momentum
  • Financiers are interested in funding concrete
    projects

8
Financing - Projects
  • Lack of good projects
  • Registry for prioritised projects on UWWTs and
    agricultural hot spots needed
  • HELCOM to organise a Pledging Conference

9
Enhanced policy integration
  • Need to integrate protection of the marine
    environment into other policies on all levels
  • Marine Spatial Planning
  • can be seen as a practical demonstration of
    integration of environmental considerations into
    other sectors
  • HELCOM Recommendation 28E/9 on the development of
    broad-scale marine spatial planning principles in
    the BSAP
  • to jointly develop common principles and tools to
    mitigate conflicting interests and to ensure
    sustainable use of marine resources and
    protection of marine areas

10
Implementation of the BSAP
  • Implementation Group
  • high level guidance on implementation
  • follow-up of implementation
  • review of measures
  • co-operation and co-ordination with other related
    work
  • National programmes by 2010 and their
    effectiveness to be evaluated at Ministerial
    Meeting in 2013

11
Concluding remarks - Recipe for success
  • Tailor made joint actions
  • Strong stakeholder involvement
  • Sufficient financing
