The aims of Go4Baltic are to:

  • analyse how good ecological status of the Baltic Sea can be implemented cost-effectively throughout the Baltic Sea region,
  • analyse existing policies and how they have stimulated technological innovation and development to reduce nutrient losses from agriculture,
  • analyse how future agricultural and climate policy developments influence nutrient load reductions to the Baltic Sea, and
  • analyse how farmers adapt to the current and future policies in different parts of the Baltic Sea region.

Recommendations from the research will be presented as a “Baltic Sea Socioeconomic Action Plan”, proposing policy improvements in both the short- and long-term.

The project is implemented within the framework of the BONUS Joint Baltic Sea Research and Development Programme, co-financed by the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme (2007-2013) and the National Funding Institutions.
