1. PROBAPS (Protection of the Baltic Sea: Benefits, Cost and Policy Instruments)
Led by Kari Hyytiäinen (by Anni Huhtala 2009 - May 2011), MTT Agrifood Research Finland, (Finland)
An economic ecological dynamic model has been developed focusing mainly on eutrophication and maritime transportation. Financed by Finnish Advisory Board of Sectoral Research.
Led by Tore Söderqvist, Enveco Environmental Consultancy Ltd., (Sweden)
The project identified how people around the Baltic Sea use and regard the Baltic Sea. The first results were published in September 2010. Financed by Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
Led by Heini Ahtiainen, MTT Agrifood Research Finland
The project estimated the benefits of reducing eutrophication in the Baltic Sea. The results were published in July 2012. Financed through the research project PROBAPS, funded by the Finnish Advisory Board for Sectorial Research, the research project Managing Baltic nutrients in relation to cyanobacterialblooms: what should we aim for?, funded by the Swedish Research Council for Environment, Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning (Formas), the research alliance IMAGE, funded by the Danish Strategic Research Council and the Danish Baltic Nest Institute, Aarhus University, the BalticSTERN Secretariat at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm University, the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) and the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency.
4. Cost modelling and minimisation
BNI/NERI Led by Berit Hasler, BNI/NERI (Denmark)
In cooperation with the Department of Economic Sciences at the University of Warsaw (Poland) and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (Sweden) cost functions for measures to mitigate and abate eutrophication of the Baltic Sea have been estimated and modeled.
MTT Cost Modeling Led by Lassi Ahlvik, MTT Agrifood Research Finland
A dynamic cost model was developed and nine measures were included in the modeling on how to mitigate and abate eutrophication of the Baltic Sea
Financed through the research project PROBAPS
Led by Thorsten Blenckner, Baltic Nest Institute (Sweden)
The project delivered calculations on the values and costs of commercial fisheries in the Baltic Sea. The results from the study were published in April 2011.
Financed by the Swedish EPA.
