1 Lessons learned - Interim reporting - EU-com:s evaluation of the Swedish PoM Ann-Karin Thorén

2 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library 2 Swedish PoM /38 measures concerning public authorities and municipalities Environmental Proetction Agency, Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (nr 2-8) Swedish Geological Survey (nr 9-12) Swedish Transport Administration (nr 13, 27) Swedish National Board of Housing, Building and Planning (nr 14) Swedish Board of Agriculture (nr 15-17) Kammarkollegiet (nr 18 Myndigheten för samhällsskydd och beredskap (nr 19) Riksantikvarieämbetet (nr 20) Skogsstyrelsen (nr 21) Statens Livsmedelsverk (nr 22) Statistiska Centralbyrån (nr 23) Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (nr 24-26) County administrative boards (21) (nr 28-31) Municipalities (290) (nr 32-37)  New rules and instructions  Planning, strategies, priorities  Investigations  New permits and licenses  Improve monitoring  Consulting/advise

3 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” EU-commission examine Swedish PoM:s The general scope of the application of measures is divided between a national scale (agencies etc), on RBD level and on water body level. The main authorities responsible for the implementation are authorities at the national level, and a big role is played by regions and the municipalities. It should be noted, that a large number of institutions are involved, making the administrative set-up difficult to overview and to some extend not transparent Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library3

4 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” Interim reporting of Basic measures 11.3.a (Urban Waste Water, Nitrate directive, Seveso, Habitat etc) 11.3 b-l (Efficient water use, Controls on abstractions and impoundments, Controls on point sources discharges) Not always agreed upon how to implement these regulations among the responisble authorities Not always clear for the responisble authorities that these measures are supposed to be included in WFD PoM:s Not clear in PoM:s which WB:s are ”suffering” from pressures these directive are aiming at Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library4

5 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” How to handle in PoM ? Swedish PoM:s will still concern public authorities and municipalities National council of measures for WFD (aiming at streamlining with MSFD, BSAP etc) Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library5

6 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” EU-commission examine Swedish PoM:s Sweden needs to improve its programme of measures to be more explicit on the specific measures that are being planned, to enable a transparent planning tool showing how the environmental objectives can be met in a coordinated manner across the RBDs. Meaningful information regarding the scope, the timing and the funding of the measures should be included in the programme of measures so the approach to achieve the objectives is clear Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library6

7 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” EU-commission examine Swedish PoM:s There is no clear link between status assessment and the need for pressure reduction (nutrients, chemical pollutants and hydromorphology) and measures. Many of the measures are "administrative" (new investigations, monitoring etc) Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library7

8 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” How to handle in PoM ? Swedish PoM:s will still be mainly administrative and based upon law enforcement Clearify linkages status assesment/pressure reduction/measure/instrument Communication between responsible authorities aiming at agreements upon efficient implementation Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library8

12 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” Easier to identify supplementary measures The environmental code Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library12

13 To change/update/remove ”Presentation title” and ”Name” in the footer, go to ”Insert – Header & Footer” Additional measures in protected areas The RBMP does not clearly identify the protected areas, which will not reach the more stringent objectives according to other directives.. On the other hand, it is stated in the RBMPs, that the PoM should also cover the needs for improvement in protected areas – indicating that the measures to be taken should also ensure the fulfilment of the more stringent objectives related to other directives. In SE 5 it is stated that the favourable conservation status for NATURA 2000 areas have not been used as a more stringent objective in the RBMP’s, as the status assessment regarding NATURA 2000 areas has not yet been quality assured. It is mentioned, that the line between good and poor ecological status according to the RBMP usually is a good indicator for a favourable conservation status too. Regarding the protection of drinking water, a number of administrative measures to support the basic measures are mentioned in the RBMP’s, but not defined as supplementary or additional. Examples are collection and storage of information, monitoring, planning, statistics etc Nordic/Irish workshop on measure library13
