BalticSea2020’s major coastal zone project, Living coast, will provide information about how Baltic bays can be restored and regain good ecological status. The measures to be carried out as part of the project do entail costs, but can also bring benefits associated with an improved water environment. In the evaluation study “Measures for living coasts – how does the community benefit?”, the environmental economists Kajsa Johansson and Tore Söderqvist from Enveco Environmental Economics Consultancy Ltd examine the benefits and consequences of the measures taken in the Living Coasts project for people with links to the study areas of Björnöfjärden, Säbyviken and Torpe-Infjärden.
