  29. 29. So.. we provide a lot of EO Services for water and coastal management…… Adopted from a Deltares presentation Copernicus Climate Projections Workshop | ECMWF Townhall, Reading April 20-21, 2015
  30. 30. We claim we do it for water / coastal managers What do water / coastal managers do?: Deal with too much, too little, too dirty water… • Monitor their water system’ inform people what they can expect on all kind of water issues + warn them for floods and droughts • Develop and maintain an infrastructure that meet all the requirements (WFD, EU-FD, Marine Strategy Framework Directive, International agreements, design criteria of infrastructure) • Discuss with policymakers the (interpretation / meaning / consequences) of changes in these requirements • Discuss with sectors dependent on the possible options to adapt the system (Long term) Actually they spend (very) limited time to what we provide
  31. 31. EO services for the long term and short term planning • EO services for the long term planning: typically for serving the preparation of a water/coastal management plan for a country / water management system (frequency 5-10 yrs (?)) • EO services for the short term: typically for serving flood/drought/quality warning (frequency daily-weekly) • How this planning is organized (to what extend alien parties are involved) varies a lot over countries; coastal management somewhat easier than inland
  32. 32. Typical questions in the water planning phase • Are the current standards still reasonable or should they be changed • What adaptation strategies do help to meet the standards • Is implementation of the strategies technically possible/feasible? • What are the costs and benefits of developing adaptation strategies? • Can the strategies be implemented in the current political and environmental conditions?. • What are the political consequences and institutional requirements for implementation of the strategies? Summarizing: • Do measures do the job • Is it technically possible to implement them, • Can we pay them It is our job to support them on this!
  33. 33. So.., in stead of looking for ecosystem, climate, water, etc,…. services Try to support them with decision services
