Climate Change, the Aquatic Environment and the Water Framework Directive
ISBN: 1 84057 434 8
This project examined the likely effects of climate change on UK water industry compliance with the Water Framework Directive (WFD), set in the context of other expected changes, such as demographic shifts or changes in land-use.
A range of other drivers were identified - changes in energy prices, new regulatory targets for energy efficiency, water conservation and flooding, demographic and land use changes, and new environmental legislation – that are likely to directly or indirectly affect the water industry.
The report proposes a Conceptual Assessment Framework to identify linkages between different drivers and industry operations and specific aspects of performance. The framework of drivers and effects was then used to assess the effects of the WFD, climate change and other drivers, which, with further development, could be used by water companies to identify appropriate responses.
