Eurostats activities in the area of Water Accounts Stephan Moll Water Accounts and Economics Workshop 7 and 8 October, 2010 EEA, Copenhagen
Objectives Overall: provide overview on Eurostats activities Water Accounts by Eurostat How it is embedded into Eurostats Environmental Accounts programme Main message => limited scope of Eurostats activities! Contributing to Mapping of who does what in Europe?
Water information by Eurostat Distinguish ! 1.Water Statistics => water policies 2.Water Accounts => macro-economic policy (sustainable consumption and production) Unit E.3 Environmental and Forestry Statistics –Jürgen Förster => Joint Questionnaire on Inland Water (OECD/Eurostat) Unit E.7 Environmental Accounts and Climate Change –Stephan Moll => add water-vectors to Input-Output framework
Eurostats Environmental Accounts Programme - E.7 based on SEEA 2003: Monetary Flow Accounts relate to accounting-block A. It comprises 6 modules Physical and Hybrid Flow Accounts relate to accounting blocks C and E. It comprises 5 modules
Why Water Accounts at Eurostat ? …the mandate European Strategy for Environmental Accounts ESEA (2008 revision): …develop Water Accounts in the longer run ( ) => joint project of the European Statistical System ESS Eurostat = project manager Decision: to start with physical flow accounts ! …taking into account international developments
…the typical project cycle WHAT ? objective –Set of tables (Water Accounts: physical flow accounts) HOW ? options to reach objective –Compilation methods (standards) DO IT ! decide and implement –Data production (questionnaire, testing, pre-filling, legal base)
Eurostats NAMEA Task Force on Water Meeting September 2010 Objectives: 1....develop set of tables for Water Accounts 2.…clarify conceptual issues 3.…start develop compilation methods
Set of Tables (water PSUTs) Basic choice: => employ concept of Physical Supply and Use Tables (PSUT).
Set of Tables (water PSUTs) 1. Physical Supply and Use Tables on water flows
Set of Tables (water PSUTs) 2. Physical Supply and Use Tables on emissions to water
…link to SEEA-Water bridge water flows SEEA-W: Table 3.1
…link to SEEA-Water bridge emissions to water SEEA-W: Table 4.2 A Table 4.2 B
Outlook Next steps in ESS process: –Final layout of Water PSUTs (2010) –Testing 1: populating with NL and JQ data (ca. 2011) –Testing 2: voluntary questionnaire to countries (ca ) –Manual (compilation methods) (starting 2011) –Legal base ?
Discussion How do Eurostats activities fit into WISE? Exchange of raw data ? (e.g. modelling evapotranspiration) Help finding right indicator (e.g. water consumption) Ensuring consistent use of concepts, terminology etc.
