Welcome to BALANCE

BALANCE – or in full "Baltic Sea Management – Nature Conservation and Sustainable Development of the Ecosystem through Spatial Planning" – is an INTERREG III B co-funded project aimed towards development of informed marine management tools for the Baltic Sea based on spatial planning and cross-sectoral and transnational co-operation.

BALANCE, which started in July 2005 and ends in December 2007 (End Conference see "Meetings and events"), will in particular:
  • Identify and collate relevant and available marine data in the Baltic Sea, Kattegat and Skagerrak area.
  • Define Baltic Sea marine landscapes and develop habitat maps, the latter in 4 pilot areas.
  • Assess the existing Baltic Sea Marine Protected Areas network and develop a “blue corridor” concept.
  • Develop Baltic marine zoning plans in 2 pilot areas (pilot area 2 and 3).
  • Communicate with stakeholders and disseminate the results to partners, stakeholders and the public.

You can read more about the BALANCE project on this web site, in the BALANCE Newsletters (3 have been published so far) and in the BALANCE Interim Reports. BALANCE Newsletters and BALANCE Interim Reports can be found under "Publications".
