Panel discussion DAY 1 – New insight on the Baltic Sea Region

 Moderated by Mette Termansen, University of Copenhagen


On the background of the presentations of key findings from the four projects representing highlights new insights on the Baltic Sea region will be debated.

The results from the four BONUS projects BALTICAPP, GO4BALTIC, MIRACLE and SOILS2SEA provide new insights based on evaluations and assessments, modelling frameworks and tools.  The four projects have produced results that can improve state-of-the art within both social –and natural scientific research related to the Baltic Sea, and the research outputs can improve policy implementation and coordination around the Baltic Sea. The highlights from the four projects cover assessments from farm level scale to international agreement level, including:

  • Scenarios for the future climate, land use and agriculture and their impacts on nutrient loads.
  • Policy and governance – evaluations of the past, insights for the future
  • Assessments of ecosystem services at land and sea
  • Models developed at different scales, covering marine models, hydrological models at field and Baltic Sea Basin scales as well as integrated economic and ecological models
