Strategic environmental assessment finalised
26 Jan 2015

The strategic environmental assessment for the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014-2020 has been finalised and the European Commission has accepted the environmental statement.

The aim of the strategic environmental assessment was to ensure that environmental considerations were taken into account in the development of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme.

The assessment shows that the objectives and horizontal principles of the programme emphasise sustainable development as an intrinsic part of the programmes objectives. This indicates that the programme is drafted under due consideration to the possible environmental impacts.
