BONUS+ project  in the spotlight:


Reduction of Baltic Sea nutrient inputs and cost allocation within the Baltic Sea catchment

The eutrophication section of the Baltic Sea Action Plan is a milestone for environmental governance, not only for the Baltic Sea region but also in setting environmental targets and nutrient reductions for marine environments in general. HELCOM is revising the necessary nutrient reduction and country allocation schemes of the Baltic Sea Action Plan. Here, RECOCA plays a key role.

The Baltic Sea is under severe stress, experiencing eutrophication caused by excessive nutrient loads which lead to excessive phytoplankton production, reduced water transparency and ultimately hypoxia/anoxia. Combating eutrophication by nutrient reduction is vital in order to reach a healthier Baltic Sea. RECOCA has created an array of hierarchical connected data bases and models via the decision support system Nest, assuring for the first time realistic Baltic-wide estimates of anticipated nutrient reductions and their costs.
