  • WAMBAF - Water Management in Baltic Forests

    WAMBAF stands for Water management in Baltic Forests and aims to reduce nutrient and mercury export from forestry to streams, lakes and the Baltic Sea.

    The WAMBAF project started in March 2016 and will last for three years.

    The project is an important joint work for the countries surrounding the Baltic Sea during the next three years.
