EUSBSR PA Hazards - Policy Round table

PHARMACEUTICALS IN THE ENVIRONMENT (PIE)

Pharmaceutical residues in the Baltic Sea are causing concern as the full impact for the marine environment is still unknown. The Baltic Sea ecosystem is particularly sensitive to pharmaceutical pollution because of its low biodiversity, with low functional redundancy and many species experiencing an increased physiological stress due to the brackish water environment.

Pharmaceuticals can enter the environment at all stages of their life cycle: manufacturing discharges, excretion during use, and improper disposal. Once in the environment, pharmaceuticals can accumulate in fish, livestock, and vegetables as well as entering our drinking water. Pharmaceutical pollution is also closely linked to the worrying development and spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

To reduce emissions, measures are needed on both national and regional level, up-streams and end-off pipe.

In March 2019, the European Commission published a Strategic Approach to Pharmaceuticals in the Environment. This communication could be a stepping stone to effective measures to reduce the risk from pharmaceuticals to the environment.

This policy round table aims to

  • Raise awareness about pharmaceuticals in the environment in the Baltic Sea Region as a multi-sectoral issue that needs to be addressed at multiple levels.
  • Provide a shared understanding of the policy challenges but also solutions to these for addressing pharmaceuticals in the environment.
  • Identify priorities for action in follow-up to the European Commission Strategic Approach to Pharmaceuticals in the environment.
  • Share best practice and identify innovative solutions that could be harmonized across the Baltic Sea Region.

We invite relevant stakeholders from the Baltic Sea Region to this policy round table on strategic approaches and policy options to reduce the risks from PIE. 

The workshop programme features are based on most recent transnational cooperation in a number of transnational projects under the umbrella of the BSR- Pharma platform, a flagship in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region, EUSBSR as well as in on-going cooperation within HELCOM related to PIE.

The event ios organised back to back with the INTERREG South Baltic Programme project MORPHEUS final conference https://surveyhero.com/c/0817c351
