Specific Objective 2.4

Reduced nutrients, hazardous substances and toxins inflows into the Baltic Sea

This specific objective aims to reduce nutrients, hazardous substances and toxins inflows to the Baltic Sea from all types of land-based sources. This includes among others the impact of runoffs from agriculture and urban storm-waters to the Baltic Sea. The programme supports activities leading to development and implementation of innovative methods and technologies. Worked out and implemented methods and technologies should have potential for being used also outside the Central Baltic region.
