The EU WISE Freshwater portal needs to be revised, updated with new information, and upgraded to tackle those issues and to improve its user friendliness, while ensuring full alignment with the EC/EU data and IT policies.
The project was to continue to implement the principles and practices of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS). We organised a series of workshops in the six countries, produced national environmental indicators, and developed three national water information systems.
The report considers data comparable at European level, delivering a detailed summary of data reported to WISE SoE by EIONET countries, for concentrations in rivers, lakes and groundwater between 2007 and 2017.
We are cooperating on development of the European-wide Marine Litter Assessment, to be published in 2022 by EEA, with particular focus on plastics, based on core indicators of sources, pathways and state of plastic pollution.
The project requested by DG Environment of the European Commission and implemented by Milieu ltd. and TC Vode. The understanding of the European BWD in EU countries is analysed and best practices suggested.
This report considers three pieces of EU water legislation targeted at particular sectors: the Bathing Water Directive, the Drinking Water Directive and the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive, and looks at common issues in the context of the Water Framework Directive.
The project is an explorative analysis of security implications of water use development in the region. An examination of general socio-economic, environmental as well as sector-specific data was made to produce relevant indicators which support assessment of present situation and future possible scenarios.
