The Baltic Nest Institute host the Nest system, a decision support system aimed at facilitating adaptive management of environmental concern in the Baltic Sea.

Nest can be used to calculate required actions needed to attain politically agreed targets for the Baltic Sea ecosystem.

By modeling the entire drainage area, Nest is a novel tool for implementing the ecosystem approach in a large marine ecosystem.

The main focus of the model is on eutrophication and the flows of nutrients from land to sea. Reducing the nutrient input to the sea and thus decreasing the negative environmental impacts is a politically prioritized area of international cooperation.

Baltic Nest Institute can contribute to this process by formulating policies that are fair, transparent and cost-efficient.

The main target group for the Nest Decision Support System is HELCOM and regional water directors in the riparian countries.
