2 Baltic Sea regional projects This presentation introduces other ongoing projects that operate in the same field of interest as Baltic Compass. The projects are handpicked and represent international Baltic Sea projects that are in the agro-environmental field. This project list will be helpful in seeking contacts and developing networks around the Baltic Sea. The list will also show that many Baltic Sea projects have the same aim, and therefore cooperation between projects could be very interesting and useful.

3 Baltic Compass Baltic Compass aims to reinforce connections between land use, environment and agriculture leading to healthier ecosystems and a more competitive Baltic Sea Region. FACT BOX Participating countries: Finland, Estonia Latvia, Lithuania, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Denmark and Sweden Project Manager: Staffan Lund, Lead partner: SLU, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences Time period: Website:

4 Active wetlands Estonian and Finnish farmers, rural advisors and decision- makers will learn more about how wetlands can be used to reduce the nutrient load from agriculture. FACT BOX Participating countries: Finland and Estonia Project Manager: Tapio Salo, Lead partner: MTT Agrifood Research (Finland) Time period: Website:

5 Aquarius Aquarius aims to develop the farmer as water manager able to practice sustainable farming under climatic changes with due respect to environmental protection. FACT BOX Participating countries: Denmark, Norway, Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden, UK Project Manager: Irene Asta Wiborg, Lead partner: Danish Agricultural Advisory Service Time period: Website:

6 Balthazar Baltic Hazardous and Agricultural Releases Reduction The overall objective of the BALTHAZAR project is to promote protection of the Baltic Sea protection from hazardous waste as well as from agricultural nutrient loading. FACT BOX Participating countries: Finland and Russia Project Manager: Kaj Forsius, Lead partner: HELCOM (Finland) Time period:

7 Baltic Deal Putting best agricultural practices into work The strategic project objective is to cost-effectively improve the environmental status of the Baltic Sea through reductions in nutrient losses from the agricultural sector, without impairing competitiveness or production. FACT BOX Participating countries: Latvia, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, Poland, Denmark Project Manager: Kaspars Žūriņš, Lead partner: Latvian Rural Advisory and Training Centre Time period:

8 BalticSTERN FACT BOX Participating countries: Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Russia Project Manager: Siv Ericsdotter, Head of BalticSTERN Secretariat: Lead partner: MTT Agrifood Finland (Finland), Enveco Ltd. (Sweden), NERI (Danmark), Baltic Nest Institute (Sweden/Denmark) Time period: BalticSTERN is an international research network with the purpose of doing cost-benefit analysis regarding the environmental problems of the Baltic Sea and give guidance toward cost-effective measures and policy instruments.

9 Baltic MANURE BALTIC Forum for Innovative Technologies for Sustainable MANURE Management Baltic MANURE is turning the perception of manure and intensive animal husbandry from an environmental problem into an opportunity for business innovation. FACT BOX Participating countries: Denmark, Latvia, Finland, Sweden, Lithuania, Estonia, Poland, Germany Project Manager: Markku Järvenpää, Lead partner: MTT Agrifood Research Finland Time period:
