1 1 Integrated spatial assessments of land, water and biodiversity issues EIONET SEIS implementation project

2 2 Monitoring Europes changing landscape …causes & effects… now

3 3 Concept of EEA integrated spatial assessment platform Regional DPSIR indicators

4 4 Data Centres support integrated assessment integrated spatial assessment platform:The assessments are carried out through integrated spatial assessment platform: thematic data geospatial reference data analytical tools Land use Water Biodiversity

5 5 Aspects of integration Methodology integration: Combine methods for data integration, better analytical methods, DPSIR linkages and allow for country benchmarking Thematic integration: Integrate variety of sources - data, information and models on land use, water and biodiversity Multi-scale integration: Do so at several spatial scales inter alia river catchments at national and EU level

6 6 Operational objectives Produce integrated assessment inputs for the EEA SOER2010 report Implement spatial analysis methods

7 7 Main tasks Adopting catchments approach as spatial reference basis for the project, identify pilot catchments for data collection. Additional data collection (starting with 6 volunteering MS) Consolidate project methodology and validate it with EIONET partners. Identify projects complements to WISE Based on consultation on pilots results organise for large-scale assessment Run a prototype of interactive spatial analysis tools

8 8 Focus: land use intensification /abandonment, water quality/quantity, sediment balances, river fragmentation, fish status Catchments with regulated rivers in France (by 1900 and by 2000) Source: Eurosion Land use, water, sediments, fish

9 9 CORINE Land Cover data 44 classes, 23 countries with change data, Free access, 100 m grid or polygons (min 25 ha)

10 10 Land cover is a key driver at catchment level…also very useful for stratification purposes

11 11

12 12 Suggested refinements for river and catchment references 1.1 Rivers

13 13 Hydrological basins/River Basin Districts

14 14 Refining existing River networks data Patchy River WB River stretch length (km) Loire: 12129/22171 (54.7%) Elbe: (DE part) 32045/43992 (73%)

15 15 New variables and outputs (e.g. pressures) 2.2 Diffuse sources

16 16 Diffuse sources Can be addressed by information on nutrient surplus preferably apportioned by source (following revised Estat / OECD methodology) Watershed apportionment is the approach using CLC - reporting by NUTS possible Loire (and Brittany) surpluses, no limitation to animal feeding Elbe surpluses, no limitation on animal feeding

17 17 Land use and Annex 1s agriculturally- related habitats Land abandonment many habitats depend entirely on traditional extensive grazing and mowing Agricultural intensification/eutrophication many habitats are potentially affected by water abstraction and intensive nutrient input in the area Land use change analysis

18 18 Natura 2000 sites with habitats vulnerable to decrease of agricultural land management (abandonment) Natura 2000 sites with habitats vulnerable to decrease of agricultural land management (abandonment) 53 Annex 1 habitats selected for this map

19 19 Adding information on relevant land use change land abandonment (blue cells)

20 20 57 Annex 1 habitats selected for this map; these are listed in the discussion document. Natura 2000 sites with habitats vulnerable to eutrophication and water abstraction (agricultural land use intensification)

21 21 Adding information on agricultural land management: Adding information on agricultural land management: intensification (yellow cells)

22 22 New variables and outputs (state and impacts) Inland fishes Inland Fishes

23 23 …to obstacles to migration routes River fragmentation

24 24 River fragmentation: the Loire example Simulated historic migration of adult salmon Lessons: Modelling of different issues is possible Fine data is essential ( ~ 4800 dams) Long time series is key issue

25 25 Benefits for Member states Making use of data and methods already invested –from EU reporting and priority data flows –for assessments Spatial data integration that is relevant to policy requirements Benchmarking trends at regional scales –(i.e. in relation to WFD) Multilingual outcome

26 26 Required inputs from MS 1.Providing complementary data (tbd) - in addition to standard reporting flows 2.Validate methodology and results in comparison with national assessments and discussion of final assessments

27 27 Some conclusions Terrestrial / territorial systems (land, ecosystem issues, etc.) should be linked to water related issues River catchments as addressed by current WISE application can serve as basis for integrating and refining spatial data Recently developed methodologies, available reference data and new collections of thematic data offer operational perspectives
