In this series of books we attempt to highlight the importance of an ecosystem approach as regards sustainable agriculture. These three books are based on experience from the Baltic Sea and Great Lakes Regions and written by prominent experts and scientists from the two regions. Two networks have been involved in the production of the books, The Baltic University Programme (BUP) and the Envirovet Baltic Networks.

The project of producing these books was managed by BUP and has included several educational seminars and training courses on Ecosystem Health and Sustainable Agriculture. It has also achieved large international recognition as it has been awarded the status of a United Nations Partnership for Sustainable Development.
