#S45 Water Networks summoning action for a cleaner Baltic Sea (WATERNETS)

HA Involve – Strengthening multi-level governance including involving civil society, business and academia

The main project plans to contribute to cross-sectoral policy-oriented dialogue, and extended and faster implementation of concrete measures to combat the excess of nutrients into water. This will also increase the effectiveness of the implementation of the HELCOM Baltic Sea Action Plan and the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region.

The main project will facilitate the development and application of the Water Users Partnership (WUP) method to ensure better river basin based management. The WUP approach also aims at ensuring better local and regional stakeholder participation and more efficient implementation of concrete measures.
