Event Workshop "How can economics best support water policy decision making? Taking stocks of the first years of WFD implementation"

The main objective of this informal workshop will be on the potential for economics to support policy decisions – not concentrating on specific methodological questions as such but putting methodologies and the economic assessments in the wider context of policy decisions.

The workshop will help refreshing exchanges and networking between economists from EU countries involved in the practical implementation of economic assessments to support water management and policy decision. The last few years have indeed seen more limited opportunities for such exchanges.  Finally, the workshop will also aim at bringing lessons and messages to other initiatives and workshops, e.g. the ESEE Conference held in Leipzig (Germany) in June 2007 that will have a specific workshop on the legal and economic dimensions of derogations and exemptions in the context of the implementation of the EU WFD; or to discussions that are taking place in the context of the preparation of research projects for the 7th European Research Framework Programme (FP7).
