The organizers of the project initiated a discussion on the possibilities of reconciling economic interests with the interests of environmental protection of the Baltic Sea. It was also an attempt to develop broad cooperation of the stakeholders in the implementation of the Baltic Action Plan of the Helsinki Commission (HELCOM BSAP) and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (BSR SUE), as well as to identify the possible future scenarios for the Baltic Sea, including the possible benefits of the Spatial Planning of the Sea and Integrated Coastal Zone Management.
Moreover, the National Program for the BPD Implementation and current activities aimed at improving the state of the marine environment were presented during the meeting.
The conference on the subject of “Maritime Policy of Poland until 2020” was held as a public consultation on this document.
Both the meetings were attended by Jerzy Wcisła – the Deputy Chairman of the IWW E70 Revitalization Team and Dorota Pyć – the Undersecretary of the State, who replaced Anna Wypych-Namiotko in the Ministry of Transport, Construction and Maritime Economy.
