An Agenda 21 for the Baltic Sea Region
In 1996, the Prime Ministers of the Baltic Sea Region took the initiative to
develop an Agenda 21 for the Baltic Sea Region.
This was the start of the Baltic 21 process, and sustainable development in the
Baltic Sea Region – encompassing economic, social and environmental aspects
– is the objective of that process.
The Baltic Sea Region is the first region in the world to adopt common goals
for sustainable development.
Now the implementation of the Action Programme is in progress within seven
sectors: agriculture, energy, fisheries, forests, industry, tourism, transport
and spatial planning, and in spring 2000, an additional sector - education - was
entered to the Baltic 21 process.
