HAVE WE DELIVERED?

POLICY AREA NUTRI Policy Area Nutri has focused on nutrient management and improving cross-sectoral policy in two main areas: agriculture and wastewater management. Over the past 10 years we have identified and developed more than 10 flagships to implement cost-effective, cross-sectoral and cross-border nutrient reduction measures to improve the environmental quality of the Sea. The flagships have supported transnational networks and exchange of knowledge, tested profitability of pilot measures and created new growth opportunities. Synergy of activities with HELCOM has strengthened the results. With HELCOM, we have organized several stakeholder seminars and workshops related to nutrient recycling. As a result, the HELCOM Ministerial Meeting 2018 committed to elaborate by 2020 a Baltic Sea Regional Nutrient Recycling Strategy. The vision is that nutrients are managed sustainably in the Baltic Sea region, securing the productivity of agriculture and minimizing nutrient losses to the Baltic Sea environment through efficient use of nutrients and cost effective nutrient recycling.
