Name given to contract: outlooks on water use for the 2005 State of the Environment and Outlook Report.
Reference number attributed: EEA/RNC/03/007.
Description of contract:
undertake quantitative assessments of water use outlooks, including a baseline projection, sensitivity runs on key driving forces and alternative scenarios. Water use outlooks are to highlight water use and availability and the resulting water stress. In addition to the analysis of future sectoral water use, the climate change impacts in terms of water use will have to be addressed by the contractor.
Scope of the study:
EEA member countries. Detailed results should be reported at national level. Timeframe: projections for the next 20 to 30 years.
The following tasks are foreseen:
task 1: provide an overview of the most recent and important outlooks on European and national water use:
provide an overview of the most recent and important outlooks on European and national water use. In particular, this implies providing a summary or synthesis, a comparison and an analysis of the main results. Due attention will have to be paid to differences in assumptions on the driving forces of water use.
Task 2: detailed description and discussion of the driving forces for water use:
provide a detailed description and discussion of the (economic, sectoral, political and social) driving forces for water use and how the key driving forces are reflected/modelled within the quantitative tool to be used for the projections. Both demand and supply side (sectoral and technical) driving forces affecting water uses will have to be analysed. A sub-set of key driving forces should be defined in light of their importance to water use in the future and the policy options. Undertake an extensive discussion of the key assumptions, modelling approach and tools to be used to undertake the projections.
In that perspective, the contractor will be provided with historic water quantity data held by the EEA. EEA indicator fact sheets related to water quantity can be found at the following address: http://ims.eionet.eu.int/Topics/W/indicators.
Task 3: analysis of the future development of the key driving forces and running the baseline scenario for water use:
the baseline scenario for water use will be based on an analysis of the future development of the key driving forces. The main uncertainties will be identified and discussed. A comparative assessment of the baseline scenario with the most recent and important outlooks of water use will also be done. The sensitivity runs on key driving forces will be reported and the baseline projection will be re-interpreted in light of these.
Below are given the water use indicators and sub-indicators for which the results shall, as a minimum, be reported:
water exploitation index (permitting to determine whether an area is under water stress, e.g. water shortage):
- freshwater resources/availability;
- total water abstraction/withdrawals.
Water use by sectors:
- water use by agriculture;
- water use by industry;
- water use by households/domestic sector;
- water use by the energy sector.
Task 4: development of two alternative scenarios to the baseline projection for water use and assessment of climate change impacts: the contractor will develop two alternative scenarios to the baseline projection based on an alternative analysis of the future development of the key driving forces. Storylines will be developed, including the possibilities for possible political measures affecting water uses. The two alternative scenarios will be reported on the same level of details as the baseline projection.
A comparative assessment of the alternative scenarios with the most recent and important outlooks of water use will also be done. The contractor, on the basis of the climate change baseline scenario developed by the European Topic Centre on Air and Climate Change for the EEA, will assess the climate change impacts in terms of water use. In that perspective, the EEA will provide the contractor with climate change indicators, e.g. for temperature and precipitation.
Task 5: report to the EEA:
the results of the study shall be reported to the EEA in a final report no later than eleven months after the signing of the contract.
A draft report must be delivered no later than eight months after signing of the contract and a final draft report no later than ten months after the signing of the contract. The database of the results, which should be delivered to the EEA in Microsoft Access or Excel formats, will have to include the entire outlook data used for the final report.
Total quantity or extent: the winning contractor will be awarded a contract for 11 months. The maximum budget foreseen is 60 000 EUR (including all costs).
