There is a window of opportunity to influence the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) in Europe, as the European Commission will initiate a reform process, beginning in April 2009 with the publication of a Green Paper. The reform will be carried out during the coming years and the revised CFP will be ready in 2012. Baltic Sea 2020 and the Stockholm Resilience Centre have provided a team to analyse Best Practices in order to identify what measures apply in the European context and specifically the Baltic Sea.
This study is structured in four parts:
- Background and problem description
- Best practices? Key lessons from case studies
- Applying the key characteristics of best practices in Europe
- Management of the Baltic Sea.
