Recognizing that the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda can only be achieved through the common and cooperative efforts of all countries, sectors, and stakeholders, in June 2016 the high representatives of the Council of the Baltic Sea States government institutions called upon the CBSS Expert Group on Sustainable Development to elaborate the Baltic 2030 Action Plan, specifically tailored for the BSR to guide macro-regional stakeholders through the implementation of the SDGs.
The drafting of the Baltic 2030 Action Plan was conducted under the CBSS Icelandic Presidency in a holistic and inclusive way, drawing on the extensive knowledge of the Expert Group members and international experts, as well as on the collective input from the key stakeholders from the BSR countries.
The Baltic 2030 Action Plan, endorsed by the CBSS Foreign Ministers on the 20 June 2017 in Reykjavik, hence provides a common vision for sustainable development in the BSR and will be promoted to all stakeholders, institutions, sectors and citizens in the region.
Along the path ahead, Baltic 2030 aspires to work together with a growing number of partners to set the highest standards for regional development. The Baltic 2030 network is open to stakeholders who are active throughout the region, have competence in a field that is relevant to sustainable development, and would like to contribute to the overall mission of Baltic 2030.
