    Abstract

    The Water Economic Modelling for Policy Analysis (WEMPA) project aims to develop and operationalize an integrated water and economy model framework to enable the analysis of the economic effects of measures to reach the Water Framework Directive objectives. This framework is developed on both a national and regional scale. This report presents the first results of the development of a regional-economic optimization model, the ‘WFD-RegiOptimizer’, linked to the water quality model WFD Explorer. The demonstration model presented in this report aims to clarify and demonstrate the purpose and usefulness of an integrated regional water-and-economy model that can serve as a decision support tool for the selection of a cost-effective program of measures in the context of the implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD)
