CCB Report on Industrial Livestock Farming in the BSR – Environmental Protection Context

Information

What is the scale of intensive livestock industry in the Baltic region? What is the current status of the implementation of the agriculture-oriented Annex III to the Helsinki Convention? What are the main problems connected with industrial livestock production in the Baltic Sea catchment area? Are there any methods to prevent negative impact of industrial livestock farming to make it, if not friendly, then perhaps neutral to the natural environment? The authors of this report will explore these questions, looking for possible answers, hoping to make the present report the first such comprehensive study of the issue ever made in the Baltic Sea Region.
