IWAMA aims at improving wastewater management in the Baltic Sea Region by developing the capacity of the wastewater treatment operators and implementing pilot investments to increase the energy efficiency and advance the sludge handling.

    Integrated Water Cooperation: BSR WATER platform capitalising on IWAMA project results

    Last year the IWAMA project joined BSR WATER — Platform on Integrated Water Cooperation. The platform project aims to enhance continuous cross-sectoral cooperation in smart water management. Learn how you can cooperate through it further in the region!

    IWAMA project: results for resource efficient wastewater management

    IWAMA project started back in March 2016 – with ambitious goals and results we wanted to achieve to improve the state of the Baltic Sea. After three intensive years of joint implementation of activities in ten countries, testing and learning from each other, we are extremely happy and proud to share a wide collection of produced outputs with our colleagues in the region. Equipped with strong partnership enthusiastic to bring the change to their workplace and the region; with a steadily expanding pool of external stakeholders closely involved in cooperation we are ready to overcome water challenges across the borders.

  • Bringing IWAMA results to the region at the EUSBSR Annual Forum

    The 10th Annual Forum of the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region took place on 12–13 June 2019 in Gdańsk, Poland, and IWAMA joined the event presenting its results and outputs during the seminar and on several stands.

  • Key figure data for energy and sludge benchmark

    Comparative benchmarks demonstrating wastewater treatment performance in the Baltic Sea Region in terms of energy efficiency and sludge handling.

    Get familiar with the reports! Latvian, Polish, Russian and German translations are added.

  • Audit concept for smart energy and sludge management

    The audit tools and smart energy and sludge management were developed to measure the effectiveness of the process applied at wastewater treatment plants and outline the potential for improvements of these plants.

    Download the tools and apply them to adjust energy consumption and sludge handling at your WWTP!

    Energy self audit tool and Smart sludge management audit tool are available in English, Estonian, German, Finnish, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Swedish and Russian.

  • Baltic Smart Water Hub

    Baltic Smart Water Hub is a multifunctional online portal connecting water experts in the region.

    Browse the Hub to find good practices, technical solutions and tools for smart water management, and submit your case to promote your excellence in the Baltic Sea Region!


Capacity development activities in IWAMA enable structured lifelong learning and expertise exchange of specialists working in wastewater treatment.

One of the IWAMA aims is applying energy efficient technologies in the wastewater treatment sector to reduce nutrient impact in the Baltic Sea Region.

Smart sludge management is an important step to reducing loads of nutrients and hazardous substances to the Baltic Sea.

Involvement for the clean Baltic Sea

The Baltic Sea Challenge network promotes awareness of the state of the Baltic Sea and inspires organizations in the region to join the initiative to make the shared sea resource clean and productive.
