Institutional Development

This work package analyzes the possibility of using flexible mechanisms, such as nutrient trading, in the Baltic Sea protection policy. It gathers and applies knowledge obtained in pilots and programs elsewhere; defines needs and potential for the Baltic; and outlines a roadmap for the efficient use of flexible instruments.
