Main challenges to ensure the consistency between WFD implementation and scarcity issues

take into account the possible «competition» between water scarcity and environmental protection issues and objectives (WFD) in the future (GES by 2015)

Improve the link between WFD implementation and water scarcity management particularly for the interpretation and the implementation of articles 4.6 and 4.7

Brussels, 11 April 2006

main recommendations
Main recommendations
  • When and where needed, a specific “drought management (sub)plan” should be included in the WFD RBMP (art. 13.5).
  • Public participation (art. 14) should also be organized around water scarcity management issues
  • When developing the WFD POM and associated RBMPs (art. 11 and 13), quantitative and qualitative aspects should be jointly considered
  • The integration of specific quantitative management measures inside the POM could add supplementary constraints (technical and financial) to be taken into account, specially when justifying the potential exemptions, a clear link with article 4.6 “prolonged drought” should be made.

a political initiative for what purpose
A political initiative for what purpose ?
  • No new directive
  • Need to fill different types of EU identified gaps:
  • Technical gaps
  • Financial gaps
  • Legal gaps
  • A political initiative because the WFD has imposed new contraints: the GES, in countries already suffering from scarcity
