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.
Please note since September 2014, the Pressure group has covered the functions of the former HELCOM LAND group.
