This edited quantity offers a complete and coherent interdisciplinary research of demanding situations and probabilities for sustainable governance of the Baltic Sea surroundings through combining wisdom and techniques from typical and social sciences. targeting the environment method of administration (EAM) and linked multi-level, multi-sector and multi-actor demanding situations, the booklet offers updated descriptions and analyses of environmental governance buildings and procedures on the macro-regional Baltic Sea point. Organised in components, half 1 offers in-depth case experiences of environmental governance practices and demanding situations associated with 5 key environmental difficulties - eutrophication, chemical pollutants, overfishing, oil discharges and invasive species. half 2 analyses and compares governance demanding situations and possibilities around the 5 case reports, concentrating on governance constructions and EAM implementation, wisdom integration and technological know-how help, in addition to stakeholder communique and participation. according to those cross-case comparisons, this e-book additionally attracts a collection of common conclusions on attainable methods of bettering the governance of the Baltic Sea via selling what are pointed out as very important features of environmental governance: coordination, integration, interdisciplinarity, precaution, deliberation, conversation and adaptability.

1 Governance of Baltic Sea Eutrophication and the Aims of the Study Eutrophication, along with overfishing and the presence of hazardous chemicals, constitutes the most serious environmental problems and risks in the Baltic Sea, posing severe threats to biodiversity as well as to other ecosystem services such as 2 Eutrophication and the Ecosystem Approach to Management: A Case Study… 23 Fig. 1 A conceptual model describing the complex primary and secondary ecosystem effects of eutrophication in a marine area commercial fish and nutrient cycling (HELCOM 2009a, 2010; Korpinen et al.
A majority of the interviewees saw significant problems with overlapping roles and ineffectiveness among the actors involved in eutrophication governance in the Baltic Sea region, for example, risks for duplicating similar measures (see also Tynkkynen et al. 2014). Cooperation of multiple actors is required for the implementation of policies to be successful at the regional level (Joas et al. 2007). The EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR) (European Commission 2009a) is intended to stimulate much needed coordination and cooperation, by integrating different policies and directives in different areas.
3, Sellke and colleagues analyse the fisheries case, where scientific uncertainty, a multitude of actors representing contradictory interests and the tensions between top-down EU and bottom-up regional policies may paralyse decision-making. By pointing out the most pressing issues, the authors aim to provide input that may contribute to improving fisheries governance. In Chap. 4, Smolarz and co-workers take on the case of invasive alien species and describe the striking uncertainty on the one hand and the low interest among policy-makers and stakeholders on the other.
