vision for sustainable development that will be communicated to all stakeholders, institutions, sectors and citizens in the Baltic Sea region. The Action Plan presents six focus areas and six activation processes for realizing the vision of a sustainable Baltic Sea Region, including climate action. Climate mitigation and adaptation are gradually mainstreamed by other Policy Areas of the EUSBSR. Series of joint meetings by HA Climate together with PA Energy, PA Transport, PA Ship, PA Secure, PA Bioeconomy and PA Culture have yielded higher awareness on climate change and new opportunities for increasing resilience of the region towards negative impacts of extreme weather events. Cooperation between HA Climate and PA Secure have led to the establishment of macroregional network of rescue and climate authorities, local municipalities and experts aiming at implementing the SENDAI Framework and increasing the capacity of local governments to address long-term climate risks within regional planning and day-to-day activities. Even though the Strategy for Adaptation to Climate Change in the Baltic Sea Region and the Action Plan do not contain any concrete deadlines, the implementation of actions is advanced. From 11 strategic goals, 6 goals have been implemented or are well on track and implementation of the remaining 5 goals is pending.
