Waves of change: Accelerating action and finance to save the Baltic Sea

Hybrid side event by Coalition Clean Baltic and WWF

Wednesday 24 April 2024
15:00-16:30 EET / 14:00-15:30 CET
Riga, Latvia & Online

Bringing back a healthy Baltic Sea means funds and resources must be mobilised. To speed up these efforts our finance system needs also to transform to align investments with nature-positive principles and priorities, but how could this be done?

Anticipating the HELCOM Ministerial debate, join us for an engaging panel discussion to answer this question: What does it take to speed up the implementation and financing of the Baltic Sea Action Plan (BSAP) and explore solutions for a healthy Baltic Sea?
