The purpose of the conference was to summarise the results of two cross-border cooperation projects, LIFE UrbanStorm and CleanStormWater, by exchanging information, experiences, and best practices:
• how to develop sustainable and climate-proof stormwater systems, and
• how to reduce the load of nutrients, dangerous substances, and toxins from storm water systems to the Baltic Sea.

The conference programme consisted of:
• Providing a general overview of the development/implementation of climate change adaptation plans
• Presentation of practical solutions used in different countries of the Baltic Sea region
• Viimsi Sustainable Drainage Systems (SUDS) and storm water treatment solutions site visit
