Bonus miracle presentation

  1. 1. BONUS-MIRACLE has received funding from BONUS (Art. 185) funded jointly from the European Union’s Seventh Programme for research, technological development and demonstration, and from Baltic Sea national funding institutions BONUS MIRACLE Mediating integrated actions for sustainable ecosystems services in a changing climate 1
  2. 2. MIRACLE Objective • Identify new governance configurations to reduce nutrient enrichment and flood risks in the Baltic Sea Region based on the ecosystem services concept. Slide 2
  3. 3. Project Aims • Analyse if research supported social learning process with stakeholders can identify win-win solutions to meet goals of diverse interests; • Analyse how current governance structures depend on institutional arrangements; and • Identify opportunities for greater coordination between agricultural, environmental and flood risk management policy actions in a changing climate. Slide 3
  4. 4. MIRACLE Approach  Involve stakeholders with different interests in land and water use, e.g. biodiversity conservation, urban development, hydropower, human health;  Conduct a series of five workshops where researchers and stakeholders work to identify win-win solutions for diverse goals – so called Social Learning Process;  Give scientific support through scenario modelling of impacts on water flow and quality, cost-efficiency and benefit assessments, and policy analyses; and  Use an innovative visualisation platform to present results and facilitate scenario comparisons.

  6. 6. WP2. Interactive Environmental Modelling • Create a knowledge base and make a gap analysis, • Model baseline conditions (to 2020) using the HYPE model and assess flood risks, • Model impact scenarios for suggested measures, and • Include effect of climate change and socioeconomic development scenarios for the BSR. Slide 6
  7. 7. WP3. Socio-economic assessments • Define the society and system boundaries, • Assess cost structures for the agreed scenarios, • Assess private and social be- nefits based on existing data, • Estimate cost efficiency and cost-benefits of selected new governance scenarios, and upscale to BSR. Slide 7
  8. 8. WP4. Visualisation for integrated analyses and communication • Develop a web-based visualisation platform, • Integrate results from WPs in the platform and use inter- actively in workshops, and • Develop a methodological framework (toolkit) for using visualisation support in stakeholder dialogues Slide 8
  9. 9. WP5. Social Learning • Define stakeholders’ issues, knowledge and prioritized measures, • Identify opportunities and barriers to combat defined issues – win-win solutions, • Cross case analysis for governance innovations, and • Implement the process at the Baltic Sea Region level. Slide 9
  10. 10. WP6. Innovative Governance • Develop conceptual framework for ecosystem services approach, • Review existing experiences with innovative governance for multiple ecosystem benefits, • Assess how to adapt institutional settings for innovative governance in case areas, and • Roadmap for governance and policy innovations in the BSR.

  11. 11. CASE STUDY AREAS Slide 11 Largest city Dobele Area 904 km2 Population 26 500, 50 % urban Land use 50 % agriculture, 42 % forest Berze, Latvia Reda, Poland Helge å, Sweden Largest city Kristianstad Area 4 725 km² Population 131 000, 97% urban Land use 22 % agriculture, 65% forest Largest city Wejherowo Area 485 km2 Population 200 000, 83 % urban Land use 51% agriculture, 42 % forest Selke, Germany Largest city Harzgerode Area 463 km2 Population 33 000, 80 % urban Land use 52 % agriculture, 35 % forest
  12. 12. CASE STUDY AREAS – SOME ISSUES Slide 12 Berze, Latvia Reda, Poland Helge å, Sweden Selke, Germany Unsatisfactory and poor status with respect to nutrients. Flooding in urban and rural areas. Nature conservation in upstream areas. Unsatisfactory and poor status with respect to nutrients. Flooding in urban and rural areas. Trout farming and recreation. Biodiversity conservation in downstream area. Unsatisfactory status with respect to nutrients in half of waters Acidification and mercury problems. Flooding in rural and urban areas, particularly in downstream Kristianstad UNESCO Biosphere reserve in lower part. Bad and poor ecological quality with respect to nutrients. Agricultural nutrient losses and rural sewage discharge in focus. Lower part is a flood prone zone. Urban stormwater management problems.
