Analytical Framework for Assessment of Shipping and Harbours in the Baltic Sea

Deliverable 5.1 – Sustainable Shipping and Environment of the Baltic Sea Region (SHEBA)
The aim of this report is to create a framework to understand and ultimately assess the linkages from the drivers of shipping in the Baltic Sea to its effects on ecosystem services and human wellbeing. Available Drivers Pressures State Impact Response (DPSIR) frameworks are analysed and adapted to shipping in the Baltic Sea. The developed DPSIR framework will be operationalised in further steps using available indicators. An adapted DPSIR framework and especially the reviewed indicators will be used to assess potential changes to ecosystem services compared to Business As Usual (BAU) and an integrated assessment and policy analysis to reduce pressures from shipping in the Baltic Sea.Read more

Facilitating Multi-level Governance for Energy Efficiency (multEE)

March 2015 to August 2017
The overall objective of multEE is to improve the consistency and quality of energy efficiency policy planning and implementation on different administrative levels in the beneficiary countries. The multEE-project supports this objective through the introduction of innovative monitoring and verification (M&V) schemes based on bottom-up data to ensure the impact of energy efficiency measures is correctly evaluated and useable for future energy efficiency planning. Moreover, multEE aims at improving vertical coordination between administrative levels in order to use the full potential of the integrated M&V schemes developed in multEE and improve the overall quality of energy efficiency planning and implementation.Read more
