1 Intercalibration of assessment systems for the WFD: Aims, achievements and further challenges Presented by Sandra Poikane Joint Research Centre Institute for Environment and Sustainability

2 HIGH GOOD MODERATE POOR BADECOLOGICALSTATUSGOOD HIGH MODERATE POOR BAD ECOLOGICALSTATUS HIGH HIGH GOOD MODERATE POOR BADECOLOGICALSTATUS Intercalibration ? Restore

3 Intercalibration 2 aims :  Harmonise the understanding of ‘good ecological status’ throughout all member states  Ensure this common understanding is consistent with the WFD

4 4 Biological Quality Elements  BQE

5 5 Geographical IC groups NORTHERN MEDITERRANEAN EASTERN CONTINENTAL CENTRAL/BALTIC ALPINE

6 RESULTS  Started 2003  What is achieved by now ?

7 Commission Decision of 30 October 2008 establishing values of the MS monitoring system classifications as a result of the intercalibration exercise

8 RESULTS - RIVERS  Benthic fauna  Phytobenthos

9 Rivers: Benthic fauna  ALP: AT, FR, DE, IT, SI, ES  CB: AT, BE, DK, DE, FR, IE, IT, LU, NL, PL, ES, SE, UK  EC: AT, SK  MED: CY, FR, GR, IT, PT, ES  NORD: FI, IE, NO, SE, UK

10 Rivers: Benthic fauna

11 Rivers: Phytobenthos  ALP: AT, FR, DE, SI, ES  CB: AT, BE, DE, EE, FR, IE, LU, NL, ES, SE, UK  MED: FR, PT, ES  NORD: FI, IE, SE, UK

12 Rivers Phytobenthos

13 RIVERS – PLANS  Macrophytes  Fish fauna  Include all countries  Large rivers  Refcond working group

14 Lakes  Phytoplankton: –Chlorophyll-a –Composition  Macrophytes

15 Lakes  All GIGs – common datasets – Class Boundaries

16 Lakes: chlorophyll-a boundaries

17 Lakes – Phytoplankton composition  ALP: AT, DE and IT  MED: FR, IT, ES, PT, RO, GR, CY

18 Macrophytes  ALP: DE, AT  CB: BE, EE, DE, LV, NL, UK  NORD: IE, NO, SE, UK

19 Lakes: Macrophytes

20 RIVERS Benthic fauna Phytobenthos Not all MS

21 Reference conditions ? LAKES All countriesNot all countries

22 PLANS: ALL MS, ALL BQE

23 Important: National assessment systems IC results: International water body types National assessment systems National assessment systems PROBLEMS WITH TRANSLATING
