HELCOM Stakeholder Conference 2022 (HSC2022)

March 9, 2022 – March 10, 2022 all-day

The Helsinki Commission (HELCOM) Stakeholder Conference 2022 (HSC2022) will be held online on 9-10 March 2022, in conjunction with Baltic Earth and Germany.

Centered around the theme of climate change in the Baltic Sea, HSC2022 is part of the efforts to disseminate knowledge on the regional effects of climate change. The HSC2022 will allow to gather fresh views on climate change mitigation and adaptation from policy makers and all other stakeholders in the Baltic Sea region.

HELCOM will mainly focus on the policy aspects of climate change.

Baltic Earth, a GEWEX Regional Hydroclimate Project (RHP), will address the underlying science related to climate change. Baltic Earth is co-leading the EN CLIME network with HELCOM and has co-developed the Baltic Sea Climate Change Fact Sheet.

Germany (through UBA) will focus on the management aspects of climate change, including adaptation and mitigation measures. Germany currently holds the chairmanship of HELCOM, and climate change is one of the priorities of its tenure.
