We present instrumental software for negotiation and decision support for transboundary air pollution abatement. Using this system the decision-maker can interact with a multiple criteria optimization model consisting of regional sulphur abatement cost functions and of a submodel describing the transportation of sulphur between Finland, Russia and Estonia. The PC program visualizes the Pareto- optimal set of chosen policy criteria which may include sulphur deposition rates and abatement costs in some or all of the countries. The program also computes and displays the optimal abatement policy corresponding to the Pareto-optimal (or other attainable) point specified by the decision-maker.
