Summary of the Project
Decisions of transport and logistics made in Barents Regions have too often been based on national plans only. National transport strategies have been made and Regional Transport Plans implemented being not so much aware of the neighbouring regions´ (countries´) strategies/ plans in this field.
Barents cooperation between Finland, Sweden, Norway and Northwest Russia is organized on two levels. The Barents Euro-Arctic Council (BEAC) operates at government level and the Regional Council operates at regional level. Cooperation is done on many forms, the overall objective being sustainable development of the region. Barents cooperation brings a regional and practical point of view to the broader arctic cooperation and at the same time, a broader point of view to regional development activities.
