Bo Gustafsson , BNI Sweden, will participate at the 5th Meeting of the HELCOM Working Group on Reduction of Pressures from the Baltic Sea Catchment Area. The Pressure group provides the necessary technical basis to the work on inputs of nutrients and hazardous substances from both diffuse and point sources on land, including follow-up of the implementation of the HELCOM nutrient reduction scheme. The group focuses on developing solutions to the policy-relevant questions and needs. The group will also have marine litter and underwater noise in its portfolio.

The objective of the workshop is to take the first steps to explore and develop harmonized storylines for future developments of multiple regional drivers and pressures that affect the Baltic Sea and that can be associated with readily available global climate and socioeconomic scenarios (RCPs and SSPs [1]). The workshop serves the purpose of debating a conceptual framework of regional storylines for the Baltic Sea up to 2100; exchanging ideas on plausible future sectoral developments; and exploring possibilities of further collaboration between the ongoing BONUS projects and stakeholders. Based on the workshop, a collaborative journal article on regionalized storylines for the Baltic Sea could be envisaged. The workshop is co-organised by the Bonus Secretariat and the BONUS BalticAPP project as a clustering activity. For more information on BONUS BalticAPP, please visit: http://blogs.helsinki.fi/balticapp/ To whom: Any BONUS projects and stakeholders interested in exploring the challenges of securing the future flow of marine ecosystem services in the Baltic Sea. Registrations: by 4 March, 2016 Register, read more, and see agenda at the BONUS event website [1] RCPs (Representative Concentration Pathways) are four greenhouse gas concentration trajectories adopted for the IPCC 5th Assessment Report. SSPs (Shared Socio-economic Pathways) cover five different narratives of plausible socio-economic futures. The SSPs and RCPs replace the SRES scenarios.
