SOER 2010: structure and approach
Structure of SOER 2010 A Exploratory assessment Global drivers Megatrends Uncertainties Long-term policy implications C Country specific analyses Diversity Commonality Flexibilty B European analysis of environm. systems Atmosphere Freshwater Marine Terrestrial Human Synthesis Integrated Analysis (Reflecting – Reviewing – Rethinking)
Part A aims to provide a long-term explorative, cross-cutting assessment of key global mega-trends, that might have implications for the European environment and policy context. To be published in a multi-media format + short report. Part A is targeted at European and national policy-makers as well as opinion-makers interested in broader, cross-cutting and global perspectives. Objectives for Part A
An exploratory assessment of global trends ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Europe in smaller, leaner, smarter?
Part B of the SOER 2010 report aims to provide integrated assessments of key environmental themes. Thematic assessments address state and trends (up to 2020), follow DPSIR logic, are indicator-based,and cover 38 countries. Thematic assessments will be presented as electronic publication, i.e. in an web-optimised pdf format) and are foreseen to be updated regularly. Objectives for Part B
Core elements of Part B SystemsThematic assessments AtmosphereAtmospheric pollution Climate change (mitigation) FreshwaterWater quantity Water quality MarineMarine & Maritime TerrestrialSoil Land Biodiversity SocietyResource use & waste Urban environment Climate change Sustainable use of nat. resources Environment and healthNature and biodiversity CC vulnerability & adaptationSustainable consumption Technological innovationSocio-economic trends Sectoral policies 6 th EAP priorities Cross-thematic ideas and assessments Key drivers & responses Structuring elements: Cross-sectoral analysis Globalisation Link to SynthesisLink to Part APart B assessment
Part C – country analyses Focus on Commonality 6 common issues (air pollution, CC mitigation, nature protection and biodiversity, land, freshwater, waste) Focus on Diversity Country differences and uniqueness linked to key geographical, cultural and socio-economic challenges Focus on Flexibility Highlight regional issues and success stories Country responsibility: SEIS principles, web approach
The SOER 2010 Synthesis is a summary document that includes integrated and cross-thematic analyses. Section 1: Assessing the state of the environment (2500 w) Section 2: Reviewing progress towards improving the SOE (25000 w) - focus: summarise state of the environment - entry point: 6th EAP priorities & regional angles - highlight inter-connectedness Section 3: Reflecting on environmental challenges (5000 w) Section 4: Rethinking environmental priorities (5000 w) SOER Synthesis
4 strategic communication principles Content Format Balance Broad to detailed Geography and user-based Print and web Static and dynamic Parts Derivatives
Agriculture and SOER )Analysis of pressures from sectors is embedded in environmental assessments under Part B 2)Consultancy work provides support on land use outlooks and focused input regarding biodiversity – still to be integrated in relevant assessments under Part B 3)Agriculture is one of three sectors that will be the focus of a cross-sectoral assessment (with annex on key sector trends, including agriculture) 4)Intention is to look at: inter-linkages between sectors (how do they influence each other) potential competition for resources (e.g. land or water)
