The main concern for study has been to provide a background and a resource for developing governance for sustainable development in the region. Thus the task has been dual. First to outline the conditions in the region, secondly to relate this to the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We have in addition expressed our conclusions and added recommendations for future work.
We do hope that we will in the future see an enlarged multi-stakeholder partnership and cooperation in the Baltic Sea region for increased capacity-building and better monitoring in order to support the implementation of the SDGs and secure the sustainable future for our region.
