Integration des Klimawandels in die ökonomischen Analysen nach europäischer Wasserrahmenrichtlinie

Literaturrecherche und Analyse der Bewirtschaftungspläne von 18 deutschen und europäischen Flussgebietseinheiten
Climate change will most likely impact the effectiveness and cost of measures to improve water quality. This must be taken into account in the future when selecting measures in accordance with the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD). Until now, the consequences of climate change have not been systematically incorporated into the economic analyses called for by the WFD. A new study in the RADOST focus topic "Water Management and Agriculture" evaluates analytical approaches used to date, thereby contributing to the necessary discussion on how existing and future programs could consider and integrate the consequences of climate change. The report is available online.Read more
