Kirjeldus: The aim of this twinning light project was the improvement of the health protection of Estonian population against toxic cyanobacteria in water bodies used for leisure activities and drinking water production.
In order to install the knowledge and regulations in Estonia systematic training was necessary. This training was focused 1. to local authorities responsible for bathing sites and drinking water, 2. to staff in waterworks responsible for the quality of drinking water and 3. to scientists which play a leading act in identification of cyanotobacteria and cyanotoxins.

The courses were held in Estonian institutes and were prepared in collaboration with the relevant Estonian partners. In the outcome of the courses written manuals were designed in English and Estonian language. These manuals form the base for handling of authorities and water companies. The material gives the directive for actions during the next algal seasons, illustrate prevention measures for sustainable improvement of the situation, and shows the Estonian partners the way concerning the improvement of collaboration of the partners dealing with identification, analysis and assessment under the aspect of efficient information flow.
