Modernization, innovation and adaptation!
OUR GOAL: Become a low carbon and climate adapted region
Climate change is perhaps the most pressing environmental issue in the world today. The effects of climate change are already being seen — in the Baltic Sea Region and in the world. Many regions have made cutting greenhouse gas emissions their main environmental priority. Baltic 21 battles climate change by modernizing outdated practices that cause needless emissions, promoting bio-energy production as well as adapting the Baltic Sea Region to climate change. The Baltic Sea Region has a large potential for innovations in renewable energy by using the sea, wind and biomass. We have made it our mission to find the most innovative and positive practices within bioenergy and to spread these ideas so that both emissions and costs can be saved. We facilitate cuts of emissions by finding, developing and promoting new climate-smart solutions agriculture and forestry. But regardless of how well the world manages to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, some climate change is inevitable. Therefore, it is important for us to also study and analyse imminent consequences of a changing climate in the Baltic Sea Region. We develop a strategy for how to adapt.
- Spreading climate-smart solutions in agriculture and forestry;
- Promoting bioenergy – Final policy recommendations
- Developing a new climate change adaption strategy for the whole Baltic Sea Region
