European valuation and assessment tools supporting wetland ecosystem legislation (EVALUWET)

European valuation and assessment tools supporting wetland ecosystem legislation (EVALUWET)

Objective

EVALUWET will assist implementation of the Water Framework Directive by developing an innovative decision support system (DSS) that combines understanding of wetland ecosystem functioning with stakeholder and economic methods of establishing wetland values associated with wetland functioning. A multidisciplinary approach will be adopted incorporating the expertise of European natural scientists, social scientists and economists to develop this system. Multisectoral concerns of organisations involved in related policy development and active management of wetlands would be integrated through consultation and collaborative development activities. The final DSS will be developed as a demonstration model in seven contrasting catchments, enabling application to the diversity of environmental functioning and socio-economic conditions across Europe to be tested.
