Staff profile

Siv Ericsdotter is Head of the BalticSTERN Secretariat

BalticSTERN coordinates international research with the purpose of doing cost-benefit analyses regarding the environmental problems of the Baltic Sea and give guidance towards cost-effective measures and policy instruments.

The international research network BalticSTERN has partners in all nine Baltic Sea countries. STERN stands for System Tools and Ecologic-economic-evaluation - a Research Network. The assignment originates from a request by Nordic Ministers of the Environment to obtain a "stern-like" analysis of costs of action as well as inaction with regard to the environmental problems facing the Baltic Sea. This being inspired by the economic analyses regarding climate change made by Sir Nicholas Stern for the British Prime minister in 2006.

A task of the BalticSTEN Secretariat is to facilitate policy-science and stakeholder dialogues regarding research within the network and in March 2013 results from research within the network was summarized in a report directed to Governments, Parliaments and other decision makers.

The BalticSTERN secretariat also contributes to Swedish activities in the working group for socio-economic analysis under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive within EU.
