The key project objective is to integrate the crucial issues of hazardous waste stream management and best practice waste infrastructure planning into the Baltic Sea Region spatial planning agenda and thereby provide sustainable waste stream management within the new BSR Economic Development Framework.

Project work packages

  •  Link uncoordinated waste information resources and reporting formats within a uniform, dynamic inventory structure
  • Build a regional communication platform to strengthen the coordination and inspection functions of the national waste authorities in respect of waste handling and treatment
  • Assess best practice options for priority waste streams and accelerate their introduction in the BSR through stakeholder networking
  • Introduce a regional perspective on the ongoing development of national and area waste management plans by means of a Regional Guidance Framework for waste management planning; disseminate the Framework to investors
  • Institutionalize the initiated process by creating the Baltic Waste Management Council equipped with a fully functional information platform
