Welcome to BONUS TOOLS2SEA project

Policy tools for Baltic Sea nutrient management

BONUS TOOLS2SEA is a synthesis project of the BONUS research program. It will summarize research results and insights from a broader array of studies, projects and publications available in the international literature, as well as in national languages of the Baltic Sea region. It will synthesize potentials and practical experiences with specific policy instruments designated for nutrient management, while placing and analyzing these in context of the domestic and regional governance institutions in place in Baltic Sea countries and beyond. BONUS TOOLS2SEA will identify critical gaps in current knowledge and knowledge translations into practice to provide suggestions for future institutional arrangements, pilot experiments in nutrient management and innovations in policy instruments, as well as for improvements in the knowledge base.

The research collaboration will run for 1½ years (2018-2020) and has four partners from Baltic Sea countries;

Mark V. Brady, Dept. of Economics, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.

Talis Tisenkopfs, Baltic Studies Center (Latvia)

Sanna-Riikka Saarela, Finnish Environment Center SYKE

Coordinator: Mikael Skou Andersen, Dept. of Environmental Science, Aarhus University (Denmark)


The project ‘Policy tools for Baltic Sea nutrient management’ is funded (€400,000) under the BONUS programme (art. 185), funded jointly by the EU and FORMAS (Swedish Research Council for Environment Agricultural Sciences and Spatial Planning).
