National Programmes

An early step for following up the progress in implementing the Baltic Sea Action Plan were the National Implementation Programmes by each HELCOM member state, most from 2010 and found below:

Denmark

Estonia

Finland

Germany​

Latvia

Lithuania​

Poland

Russia

Sweden​


​In general, follow up of the progress of actions in the Baltic Sea Action Plan has been carried out in Ministerial Meetings and since mid-2016, also through the HELCOM Explorer​.


OTHER FOLLOW-UP TOOLS  

An interim assessment, preceding the new BSAP follow-up explorer, was prepared for the 2013 Ministerial Meeting together with an index of national actions.

A key component of the Action Plan is the nutrient reduction scheme, including country-wise annual targets. The scheme was updated in the 2013 Copenhagen Ministerial Meeting and an easier follow-up mechanism is underway.
