VISION AND STRATEGIES
AROUND THE BALTIC SEA
- Recommend transnational policy measures;
- Promote methodology development;
- Promote co-operation projects;
- Co-operate with other cross-BSR initiatives;
- Promote a dialogue with sector institutions.
The document highlights the current territorial development trends and challenges, and presents a territorial cohesion perspective for the Baltic Sea Region in the year 2030. It also proposes concrete actions to stimulate territorial development potentials and to overcome existing gaps.
The VASAB LTP covers such policy sectors, where the transnational cooperation in spatial planning provides a substantial benefit. These have been purposely limited to urban networking and urban –rural cooperation, accessibility and maritime spatial planning. The 22 specified action agendas address these issues. They can be implemented in co-operation with other pan-Baltic organisations, national and regional authorities and partners from the public and private sector.
