Climate change will and has already affected the Baltic Sea. The prognosis is that the sea will be less of a sea and more of a lake. The levels of salt will change. The temperature will rise and the run off from land increase.
Climate change will change the weather. In the Baltic Sea region the areas with high precipitation will get more rain and drier areas even less. In the wetter areas increased rain/snowfall risks increasing the run off from agricultural land giving higher amounts of nitrogen and phosphorous reaching the Baltic Sea and thereby increasing eutrophication.
How must agriculture adjust to avoid increased impact on eutrophication? What kind of agricultural systems will stand a better chance of reducing run off? Can necessary changes go hand in hand with other environmental or production benefits?
Developed by Baltic Sea Future in cooperation with partners the Nordic Association and CBSS and Quiddity. Interactive and innovative workshop with transdisciplinary and cross-sectorial group work around how organizations can work with climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience. The workshop and the Baltic Sea Future app engages stakeholders before, during and after the congress, enabling broader networking and capacity building for you and your organization.
