 Priority Working Areas

  • Water Protection in Agriculture

    The Baltic Sea is heavily affected by eutrophication resulting from excess nutrient loads for many years. About 50% of all nutrients stem from agriculture in the Baltic sea catchment area. CCB works actively within HELCOM working groups and Heads of Delegation meetings to uphold the agreed goals and....

  • River Basin and Wastewater Management

    Most of the water quality problems in the Baltic Sea originate upstream from the thousands of water ways in the catchment area. Some 25% of the nutrient load in the Baltic Sea comes from waste water and upstream sources of pollution....

  • Fisheries and Aquaculture

    Fisheries in the Baltic Sea have a large impact of that status of the sea environment beyond just status of the fish stocks. A sea and marine ecosystem in balance needs a thriving marine life and fish play a key role in the ecosystem. The Baltic cod is very....

What is the world we live in and the one we are leaving behind? ⠀
⠀
We have asked ourselves that question not only to raise awareness of plastic pollution today but also to reflect on our own ways of living in and within the plastic world. We invited artists and environmental activists from several countries to discuss the problem of plastic consumption and provide its broader understanding through a multidisciplinary approach.⠀
⠀
The liveinleaving Exhibition is created and launched within the frame of the Plastic Free Ocean Project (2019/2020), funded by postkodstiftelsen.⠀

#DYK that Baltic salmon population reproduce in more than 40 river systems and 500 sea trout populations reproduce naturally in Baltic rivers? 🐟 🐟⠀
⠀
The construction of dams and barriers have prevented these salmonids to migrate freely in rivers to reach their spawning areas. ❌ Such barriers should be removed because they stop the migration of salmonids to upstreams spawning! 💦⠀
⠀
In our Report, we have identified potential dams and barriers to be removed or mitigated in Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus and Poland, and we present also some proposals for policy and action measures (link in bio!)⠀
⠀

The Report has been produced under the project ”Return salmonids to small Baltic Rivers”, with support from Baltic Sea Conservation Fund (BaltCF) and EC LIFE NGO-programme.

Eutrophication causes reduction of biodiversity, erosion of coasts and impoverishment in fish population. Climate change can exacerbate this phenomenon, since water and air temperature rise could create better conditions for the growth of algae blooms.⠀
⠀
A good news comes from the new Policy Brief published recently by the Baltic Sea Center, which states that the eutrophication trend has been slowed down in the last years, even in a changing climate: "A changing climate makes it even more important to reduce the nutrient supply to the Baltic Sea. In the coming decades, continued reductions in emissions of nitrogen and phosphorus from land will yield better oxygen conditions and improved water quality – even in the face of major climate change. These measures also make the Baltic Sea ecosystem more resilient to the changing climate."⠀
⠀
Therefore, it's fundamental to continue to reduce anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient inputs to the rivers and the sea. ⠀
