PA Hazards - prevention of pollution and the reduction of use of hazardous substances

PA Hazards' actions concentrate on reducing the use and preventing emissions of hazardous substances by developing and implementing primarily non-regulatory measures and Baltic Sea Region-wide policies, as well as mitigating and remediating historic contamination still causing negative effect on the Baltic ecosystem. Also support to the implementation and compliance with EU regulations and international agreements related to hazardous substances, as well as support to the development of innovative and cost-effective management options are essential.

The Policy Area "Hazards" assists stakeholders in the development of projects or other initiatives for development of measures and solutions in the field. Results are brought back to relevant policy forums at EU, regional and national level.

PA Hazards is coordinated by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water management (SwAM).


EUSBSR Policy Area Hazards is supported by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme 2021-27.
