Abstract [en]

This edited volume presents a comprehensive and coherent interdisciplinary analysis of

challenges and possibilities for sustainable governance of the Baltic Sea ecosystem by

combining knowledge and approaches from natural and social sciences. Focusing on

the Ecosystem Approach to Management (EAM) and associated multi-level, multi-sector

and multi-actor challenges, the book provides up-to-date descriptions and analyses of

environmental governance structures and processes at the macro-regional Baltic Sea

level. Organised in two parts, Part 1 presents in-depth case studies of environmental

governance practices and challenges linked to five key environmental problems -

eutrophication, chemical pollution, overfishing, oil discharges and invasive species.

Part 2 analyses and compares governance challenges and opportunities across the five

case studies, focusing on governance structures and EAM implementation, knowledge

integration and science support, as well as stakeholder communication and participation.

Based on these cross-case comparisons, this book also draws a set of general conclusions

on possible ways of improving the governance of the Baltic Sea by promoting what are

identified as vital functions of environmental governance: coordination, integration,

interdisciplinarity, precaution, deliberation, communication and adaptability.
