Evidence-based (or evidence-informed) environmental management is the process of dealing with anthropogenic pressures in natural systems using knowledge of what works best in a given system.
Bonus Return will use a tailor-made approach of Sustainability Analysis to assess identified criteria that are key when decisions of large investments for complex situations, such as eco-technologies, are contemplated.
Bonus Return will use a participatory modelling approach through the Soil & Water Assessment Tool (SWAT). This tool was developed to predict the impacts of land management practices on hydrological regimes and the loading of surface waters in complex watersheds over long periods of time.
Bonus Return will facilitate pre commercialization of winning eco-technologies emerging from the Call for Innovations.
This section of the project provides the platform that enables a co-enquiry process between stakeholders, the project, and the Baltic Sea Region. At the regional level, the 40 municipalities connected to Race For The Baltic will act as a sounding board to provide input to the selection of eco-technologies.
