CBD Regional Workshop to Facilitate the Description of Ecologically or Biologically Significant Marine Areas (EBSAs) in the Baltic Sea

At the United Nations Conference “Our oceans, our future: partnering for the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14”, HELCOM Contracting Parties registered the voluntary commitment to identify Ecologically or Biologically Significant Marine Areas (EBSA) in the Baltic Sea.

To this end, a workshop to identify Ecologically or Biologically Significant Marine Areas (EBSAs) in the Baltic Sea was organized on 19-24 February 2018 in collaboration between the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and HELCOM, in Helsinki, Finland. CCB was represented by Sandra Arvidson from Danish Society for Nature Conservation, who is also active in the CCB Working Group on BIodiversity and Nature Conservation.
