Mapping of institutional architecture for protection from oil spills in the Baltic Sea region : survey results and report
74 s. : tab.
This report presents results of the survey Institutional Architecture Mapping
for Protection from Oil Spills in the Baltic Sea region1, commissioned by the
Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency MSB, and carried out by a consultant, in a
close dialogue with experts at MSB. This survey was intended as a pilot in drawing
a comprehensive picture of oil spill contingency management in the Baltic
Sea region, aimed to understanding of what institutions may be involved in this
process in different countries. Oil spill protection is a complex undertaking due
to its cross-sectorial nature, and may vary in different approaches and practices on
how to organise it institutionally. Knowing these different models may encourage
and facilitate good practice exchange among countries, and, more importantly,
facilitate cross-border information exchange and cooperation.
