Marine litter in Nordic waters (MANOFA) (39104)


“Marine litter in the Nordic waters” was a project funded by The Marine Group (HAV) under The Nordic Council of Ministers in 2013-2014. The main aim of the project was to establish a Nordic forum for collaboration and exchange of knowledge on status for methodologies and available data for marine litter between Nordic experts, environmental managers and stakeholders, due to the common environmental concerns in our shared seas. Among other activities, the project compiled information that can be used as a contribution to facilitate the framing of this environmental problem in a Nordic perspective. Two workshops were held about I) Common knowledge status on marine litter in the Nordic countries, and indicators relevant for EU Marine Strategy Framework Directive (14 November 2013 in Gothenburg, Sweden) and II) Status for monitoring and Future actions (6-7 November 2014 in Oslo, Norway).
The project was coordinated by Aarhus University.
The project was funded by Nordforsk, Nordic Council of Ministers.
