Development and Application of Pressure, Impact and Risk Assessment Methods in Connection with the Implementation of the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD, 2000/60/EC)

Project Manager: Dr. Božidar Stojanović
Project Duration: 1 April 2008 – 31 March 2010
Implemented by: Jaroslav Černi Institute for the Development of Water Resources
Beneficiary: Serbian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management/Water Directorate

Project Environment

The EU Water Framework Directive (WFD/2000) establishes a new approach to the management of water resources in the European Union, harmonizes European water policies, and encourages sustainable use of water. Serbia is an active participant in the implementation of the WFD, based on its commitments under the Convention on Co-operation for the Protection and Sustainable Use of the Danube River and its membership in the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR).

Assessment of pressures and impacts is one of the key phases of WFD implementation, a fact which led to the proposal of this project. The purpose of the project was to provide scientific and technical groundwork for WFD implementation in Serbia.

Risk assessment is based on:

1 – Significance of pressure source 3 – Physico-chemical status
2 – Significance of pressure 4 – Status of ecosystem

DPCE concept for risk and impact assessment

Objectives

  • To define the best approach for the identification and characterization of pressure sources and significant pressures at a river basin level;
  • To review available methods and tools, and select accessible and perfected methods;
  • To outline a DPCE-based methodology for pressure, impact and risk assessments;
  • To focus on the development of methods which reflect practical assessment approaches;
  • To develop a GIS application model for the presentation and spatial assessment of information; and
  • To apply the developed methodology and demonstrate its efficiency in a case study of the Kolubara River Basin.

Outcomes

  • A review of the context;
  • A developed concept for the pressure, impact and risk assessment methodology;
  • Methods and guidance for the delineation and characterization of surface water and groundwater bodies;
  • Methods for the identification and classification of pressure sources;
  • Methods for the identification, significance assessment, and quantification of pressures;
  • Qualitative and quantitative methods for the assessment of impacts on the status of water bodies;
  • A method and criteria for the assessment of the risk of failing to meet environmental objectives;
  • Application of the developed methodology, to assess pressures, impacts and risks to water bodies in the Kolubara River Basin;
  • Presentation and publication of 26 papers at national and international conferences and in national journals and monographs, with a total score of 32.5 M points.

Criteria for Preliminary Risk Assessment:

  • Evidence that pressure sources do not exist;
  • Data on pressure sources are not available;
  • Pressures exist but have not been identified;
  • Significance of pressures; and
  • Monitoring data.

Outcome of hydromorphological pressure assessment

Criteria for the assessment of hydromorphological changes:

  • Hydrologic regime;
  • River continuity; and
  • Morphological conditions.

Summary Result

A methodology was developed for impact and risk assessments based on current river-basin data availability.  Project outcomes to date have resulted in the creation of groundwork for the application of the developed methodology in the drafting of river basin management plans.

Project Benefits

  • Identification of WFD implementation issues in Serbia;
  • Establishment of tested methods for the characterization of water bodies, identification of pressure sources, characterization of pressures, identification of significant pressures, impact assessment, and assessment of the risk of water bodies failing to meet „good status“;
  • Establishment of assessment methodology elements which will be used as a basis for the development of a technical guidance document.
