Baltic Sea Member States and the EU have together allocated around € 8 billion to Agri-Environment Measures for the period of 2007-2013. The measure covers hundreds of environmental schemes, all unique to the country where they are in use.

The WWF study 'Sorting Out the Goods'  shows that while Agri-Environment Measures in the Baltic Sea region already produce some positive results, much more could be gained by clearer targets, more cooperation between countries in the region, and improved follow-up and evaluation.

The study covers the Rural Development Plans (RDPs) of the 8 EU Member States in the Baltic Sea region and shows that countries seldom use agri-environment measures in a targeted way to achieve agreed objectives.
