introduce the whole effluent assessment (WEA) approach to monitor the overall impacts of the target substances, develop cost-effective solutions to reduce discharges and transfer knowledge and build up the capacities of the region’s authorities and industries in order to control the target substances.  www.cohiba-project.net

 

From theory and plans to eco-efficient and sustainable practices to improve the status of the Baltic Sea (WATERPRAXIS)

 

The project WATERPRAXIS "From theory and plans to eco-efficient and sustainable practices to improve the status of the Baltic Sea" aims to improve the status of the Baltic Sea by assisting the implementation of river basin management plans into practice in the region. WATERPRAXIS focuses on developing water management practices, as well as on preparing water protection action plans and measures for selected pilot sites around the Baltic Sea Region. The project will be carried out in transnational cooperation among authorities and scientific partners and will lead to concrete improvements in sustainable river basin management in the region. www.waterpraxis.net


OILRISK - Applications of ecological knowledge in managing oil spill risk
The project's main objectives are to assess the risk of a possible oil spill to nature values and especially to endangered species in the Gulf of Finland and the Archipelago Sea and to investigate the possibilities to minimize the harmful effects to the environment by the means of offshore and onshore oil combating. In the event of an oil spill fast reactions are of utmost importance, therefore ecological knowledge and oil contingency plans based on that information need to be ready for use and up to date. Research will be done to find out which species of animals and plants are most vulnerable to an oil spill and where are those species situated in the Gulf of Finland. www.merikotka.fi/uk/OILRISK.php
