How to ensure that Agenda 2030 goals for the BSR are reached in the light of a changing climate

Time: 14:00-14:50

Venue: Riddarsalen

Adaptation to unavoidable consequences of climate change is necessary to reach the Agenda 2030 goals. EU, macro-regional, national and local actors assess how a vison for the BSR, based on Agenda 2030, can be reached in the light of climate change, and how to monitor the level of success. Can common approaches on definition and follow-up of indicators increase the BSR’s resilience to climate change?

Countries in the BSR are in various stages of developing and implementing national, regional and local strategies and action plans for climate adaptation, as well as to develop strategies related to the sustainability development goals (SDG) within the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. Both these processes aim to protect human security, the environment and ensure prosperity.
