The Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference (BSPC) – gathered digital – unanimously passed on 30 August 2021 the following 30th BSPC resolution:
The priorities of the 30th annual conference and resolution so far relate to the
– Cooperation in the Region, Peaceful and reliable neighbourliness and intense cooperation
built on inclusive participation and trust in the democratic system,
– Democracy in a changing media landscape as well as
– Climate change and biodiversity.
It is customary that the delegations to the BSPC – or the parliaments as a whole based on an appropriate decision – inform their governments about the outcome of the respective annual conference. Furthermore, with the BSPC resolution, the delegations call on the governments in the Baltic Sea Region, the CBSS, the EU, and other pertinent actors to implement a range of actions or measures.
The Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference and its Standing Committee appreciate very much that the governments from the Baltic Sea area again sent statements on the implementation of calls for action in the 30th resolution. Many comments were very detailed and essential for political development in the areas addressed.
Some parliaments explicitly decide that their governments implement the resolution within their competencies and report to Parliament on its implementation.
To receive a comprehensive overview of the actions taken by the governments in the Baltic Sea Region in response to the resolution of the Digital 30th Baltic Sea Parliamentary Conference, the members of the Standing Committee have asked their government to inform as far as possible on the following:
Which measures, projects or actions have been
b) initiated, and
in support of the 30th BSPC resolution, especially regarding the calls for action?
The statements and information provided by the governments form a unique and valuable overview of developments in the respective policy fields in the Baltic Sea Region.
Based on these statements and comprehensive information, parliamentarians can track progress in different policy fields and identify further action needs.
The compilation will be updated as soon as further statements are received.
