HARMONICOP Report Summary

Project ID: EVK1-CT-2002-00120
Funded under: FP5-EESD
Country: United Kingdom

9 national case study reports based on the template providing an assessment of the processes involved, the information tools used, their success and lessons to be learnt

The purpose of the case studies is to gain first hand experience with PP in river basin management so as to examine how social processes and information tools are applied and used in practice. In addition the case studies provide an opportunity to test the ideas developed on effective PP so as to identify approaches that work and those that do not. In particular this will help to provide examples, which can be put forward as 'good European practices'. The initial tasks for the first year were to develop a typology of case studies, to organise appropriate national case studies and to contribute to the development of an evaluation template. Nine case studies have been agreed and will be conducted in: France, Hungary, UK, Switzerland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands.

There are 4 types of case study. :
- Class 1 is a historical literature review
- Class 2 is a historical review based on interviews
- Class 3 is real time observation; and
- Class 4 is real time participation.

Case studies are currently underway and are being conducted using a common template developed in earlier stages of the project.

Reports arising from each of the case studies described above were submitted on the 30th November 2004. These reports will be synthesised into a report on 'Good European Practice' and will be delivered in April 2005.
