32 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 32 Proposed priorities for 2004 - 2005 Priorities for 2004 – 2005: River Basin Overview incl. - Assessment of risk for failing to meet obejvtives - Identification of AWBs and HMWBs Define Reference Conditions using data from best available sites and expert judgement Design monitoring programme Revise existing classification system 1 2 3 4 WICU

33 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 33 Status WFD Bulgaria Where do we stand – where should we be standing ? - Significant progress over the last year in the Basin Directorates who knows, the report may be ready March 2005! - Intensive work required and Basin Overview must have highest priority - Increased co-ordination of activities – WICU - Reference conditions and classification system must have high priority - GIS investment and training - Organisational development -> the matrix organisation

34 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 34 Closing comments: Implementing the Directive in Europe Comprehensive inform- ation gathering and assessment 2003 2007 2009 2015 River Basin Management Plan with programme of measures Implement programme of measures Good Water Status Coming to terms with the implications of the Directive Political, financial and stakeholder commitment Standing up to that commitment Take a rest !

35 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 35 GIS and the WFD Production of Maps Technical specification for maps A harmonised data infrastructure Reporting CIS Guidance Document:

36 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 36 Level of complexity Identify Pressures: Fairly straightforward Assess Impacts: Complicated – ecological, chemical and other expertise required Evaluate risk of failing to meet objectives: Complicated – Ecological, chemical, statistical and other expertise + quality classification needed

37 I:\ sag\03.546.00\WDF\admin\ProjectForms\Slide_master.ppt Implementation of the Water Framework Directive in Bulgaria 37 Designing monitoring Surface waters !
