Sustainable manure and nutrient management for reduction of nutrient loss in the Baltic Sea region - SuMaNu
Sustainable manure and nutrient management Project Platform. Its aim is to gather, analyse and synthesize the best practices and recommendations on sustainable nutrient management from the four participating projects: Manure Standards (MS), Baltic Slurry Acidification (BSA), GreenAgri (GA) and PROMISE (PR). Also the results of previous manure-related projects will be used.
HELCOM contributes to SuMaNu work package 3 "Policy recommendations for sustainable nutrient management and recycling". The outcomes of the work package will support the elaboration of the Baltic Sea Regional Nutrient Recycling Strategy by 2020 and the update of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan beyond 2021.
SuMaNu is co-financed by Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme under the specific objective Clear Waters.
Duration: 1st of October 2018 – 31st of March 2021.
Platform on Integrated Water Cooperation - BSR Water
The aim of the Platform is to foster cross-sectoral cooperation and integration in smart water management by providing a possibility for transnational experience exchange, sharing of good practices and solutions, as well as delivering comprehensive overview of the current and future regional policy. The platform cooperation is based on practical achievements and results of seven projects addressing water mamangement challenges: water pollution from households, industry and agriculture; eutrophication, climate change, excessive water and energy use.
The outcomes of the contributing projects support the long-term development of regional environmental policy and recommendations which will further strengthen policy-practice link in implementation of advanced water protection measures, including smart nutrient management and sludge handling, storm water management and energy efficiency cycle at national and municipal levels.
The platform developed The Baltic Smart Water Hub - a multifunctional online portal increasing capacity of WWT operators (www.balticwaterhub.net) where the results of pilot investments are inserted.
