Cooperating for sustainable regional marine governance - The case of fisheries and nutrient run-off from agriculture to the Baltic Sea

This interdisciplinary project is focused on preconditions for regional collaboration in relation to environmental governance of the Baltic Sea. Overfishing and eutrophication from agricultural run-off have been selected as case study areas, because of the considerable tensions between natural resourse use and environmental protection objectives in these areas. The major expected outcomes comprise (a) an increased understanding of contemporary governance in these areas and (b) suggestions on how new and improved collaborative schemes could contribute to more effective regional environmental governance in the future.
