No:16 Environmental protection, natural resource management and sustainable development in the Baltic Sea Region

Bertil Hägerhäll, Ardena Miljö AB
The Lake Victoria Initiative builds on the assumption that the experiences from the successful Baltic Sea cooperation could be used. If this proves true, Sweden and other Nordic and Baltic Sea countries would have special possibilities to lend assistance to a similar process in the Lake Victoria Basin. The cooperation is assumed to focus on addressing the escalating environmental problems and promoting sustainable development in the region.
