Water & Ecosystem Goods and Services

  • Rating12345

The aim of this meeting will be to accelerate the practical application of ecosystem goods and services thinking into workable procedures throughout the wider water sector, in order to meet the urgent requirement of applying this to the current planning cycles including the periodic review process to 2014, WFD ( RBMP15), water resources and flooding plans. The enormous scale of the hundreds of projects, measures and schemes assessed makes this a challenging test bed to work through this thinking in practical situations.

The conference will also be of direct interest to people working on applying ‘socio-economics’ and EG&S thinking to projects, schemes and measures on land and in the marine and coastal environment. The objectives are:

To clarify the application of ecosystem goods and services thinking as an assessment methodology in the water sector.

To explore what progress has been made in relation to the major water sectors:
Future Price Limits 2014 (‘PR14’)
The Water Framework Directive
Flood Risk Management
Water Resource Planning
To look at the practical developments of Paid Ecosystems Services thinking and the linkages with site based valuation

To help promote the next steps e.g. guidance, to assist the process of putting EG&S thinking in to practice in the water sector.
