Cleaner air and less acidification among proposals for new environmental goals

Sustainable lakes and watercourses

The Swedish EPA is of the opinion that more lakes and watercourses should be protected. Those that have high natural values should receive long-term protection by 2020. Protection measures for municipal water supplies do not go far enough.

A balanced marine environment, a magnificent mountain environment and flourishing wetlands

Included in the intermediate goals of the Balanced marine environment objective is the preservation of native species and natural habitats. Non-indigenous species or genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which can jeopardise biological diversity, should not be introduced. There are major cultural environmental values in coastal areas and in archipelagos that should be preserved and well looked after. For the fishing industry to be sustainable and to avoid unwanted incidental catches of, for example, seals, better rules and equipment are required.

Several measures are needed to protect the unique natural values of the mountain environment. More areas need to be protected, reindeer grazing needs to be adapted to the long-term productive capacity of the land and tourism and other industry must take more responsibility for the environment. In addition, the protection of endangered species must increase and maximum limits must be introduced for noise pollution from engines. Off-road vehicles need to be improved so that they cause less environmental disturbance.

Our different types of wetlands should be well represented in all parts of the country. It is also important to preserve and develop the cultural environments and social values that are present in older, cultivated wetlands. In 20 years, all wetlands listed in the mire protection plan should be protected. In addition, a plan is needed for the preservation of wet forest and a programme of measures for the care of fertile fens.
