balticboost

Baltic Sea project to boost regional coherence of marine strategies through improved data flow, assessments, and knowledge base for development of measures (2015-2016)


BalticBOOST is a EU co-financed project coordinated by HELCOM. 

​The main objective of the project is to improve regional coherence in the implementation of marine strategies through improved data flow, assessments, and knowledge base for development of measures.

BalticBOOST will develop assessment tools and set up data arrangements to support indicator-based assessments of the state of and pressures on the Baltic Sea. A broader knowledge base will allow the project to propose principles for joint environmental targets for pressures affecting seabed habitats. Furthermore, the project will support the development of a joint report that documents regional coordination of actions agreed in HELCOM and MSFD Programmes of Measures for those Contracting​ Parties to HELCOM that are EU Member States.​

The project started 15 September 2015 and will extend for 15 months.
