Are there still unused cheap nutrient abatement opportunities? Can abatement costs be reduced and sea conditions be improved by changing the policy mix?
This workshop welcomes practitioners from the public and private sector and scientists to discuss ways forward for Swedish eutrophication policy in an international context. The workshop is organized within the framework of three EU-projects: NutriTrade, GO4BALTIC and BALTCOAST.
