Project: BSR TransGovernance

BSR TransGovernance

Lead Partner: Region Blekinge, Sweden

Priority Area (PA) Transport in the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region calls for coordination of national transport policies and actions to ensure a harmonised transnational development of the transport system.

The ensured thematic focus and established links between the above initiatives helped achieve certain stage of coordination and complementarity. However, fuller integration of the approaches, which would enable better development and alignment of transport policies at various governance tiers, faces a number of challenges.

The project objective is to demonstrate how multi-level governance models, tools and approaches can contribute to a better alignment of transport policies in the BSR at various administrative levels and better incorporation of the business perspective. This is expected to increase commitment of public and private stakeholders to achieving greener and more efficient transport in the Baltic Sea Region, in line with PA Transport of the EU Baltic Sea Strategy.
