Establishment of a peer review mechanism for the improvement of Water Framework Directive implementation.
The Water Framework Directive (WFD) introduced in 2000 many new concepts and governance and technical challenges in an integrated approach to sustainable water management. A lot of effort has been put by Member States into the development of the first river basin management plans (RBMPs), and knowledge of water status has considerably improved. However, the Commission's 2012 assessment of the RBMPs has shown important differences in implementation levels across the EU and more efforts are needed to ensure the achievement of the WFD objectives in the 2015, 2021 and 2027 planning cycles. The Commission, in the 2012 blueprint proposed, in the framework of the CIS, to set up a simple and voluntary peer review system, which was endorsed by EU Water Directors. Against this background, the call for service aim is to set up a simple, voluntary and targeted system to allow mutual learning between competent authorities (the peers) about WFD implementation and river basin management planning. The final output of this mechanism is the improvement of the WFD implementation across river basin districts (RBD) by sharing experience between various MS. In order to achieve this, the specific objective of this call for tender is to establish a secretariat for the peer review process.
