Baltic Deal
Description

The Baltic Deal, a flagship project of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea, was set up to tackle one of the region's biggest environmental challenges – farm nutrient run-off into the sea, which stimulates excess plant growth and changes the ecosystem by favouring some species over others. By persuading thousands of farmers to adopt more sustainable farming techniques and water management practices, the Baltic Deal significantly reduced nutrient loss.

Results

A network of 2 500 farmers from Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden was formed. A network of 117 demonstration farms has been implemented. Some 300 events were organised, attended by 4 000 people, and around 2 500 people visited the actual demonstration farms.
