CCB works actively within HELCOM working groups and Heads of Delegation meetings to uphold the agreed goals and....

  • River Basin and Wastewater Management

How does climate change affect river basins?⠀
⠀
Water issues, such as floods and droughts, are among the most negative effects from climate change around the world, including the Baltic Sea region. ⠀
⠀
In the Baltic catchment, it is foreseen: ⠀
💧 an increase of the overall level of run-off⠀
💧 an increase of the level of nutrients in water basins⠀
⠀
⚠ What are the consequences?⠀
Deterioration of water qualities, exacerbation of eutrophication, biodiversity loss, destruction of vital socio-economic infrastructures. ⠀
⠀
❕ Water bodies need adaptation measures to climate change. ⠀
If you want to learn more, follow our short info-campaign on our Facebook page coalitioncleanbaltic or by searching #BalticClimate ⠀
⠀
#Climateliteracy is one of the pillar to #RestoreOurEarth and you can join the movement today on the occasion of the #EarthDay2021! Check out our link in bio.⠀
⠀
We must protect and restore our environment and its natural resources not only because we care about nature, but also because a healthy planet is fundamental for our health and survival!

🍃💧We need to protect our rivers and nature! 📝⠀
⠀
The River #Oder needs protection from expansion plans and the development of inland navigation under the pretext of flood protection.⠀
NGOs, scientists and parliamentarians published a joint declaration against the Oder river expansion. Read the declaration in our link in bio and support the action to #SaveOder.⠀
⠀
At the same time, the European Commission asked the public to give their opinion on what nature restoration across the #EU should look like. The more people respond, the more likely we can get a good law that can help to restore nature. ⠀
⠀
We can speak up for the Oder river and to #restorenature, sign the petition! ⠀
