Reporting on Programme of Measures (Art. 13) WG DIKE Dr. Jan Cools (29 -30/9/2014, Brussels)

Introduction - Principles & Lessons learned • Re-use of data and information • Reduce

Introduction - Principles & Lessons learned • Re-use of data and information • Reduce duplication of reporting • More clarity on expected products • Aim for more consistency and comparability • Link reporting and assessment methodology Based on following documents • MSFD reporting on monitoring • MSFD Po. M Recommendation • WFD 2016 Reporting Guidance, incl. pre-defined ‘key types of measures’ (KTM’s)

Categories of measures Category of measures Reporting needs 1. Existing measures under other policies

Categories of measures Category of measures Reporting needs 1. Existing measures under other policies (mostly WFD) • 1 a. Fully implemented • 1 b. Not yet (fully) implemented LIMITED • Concise overview of current and future contributions to marine GES and targets • Gap analysis • Reference to source doc MORE EXTENSIVE • Reference to original measure • Additional aspects needed to achieve GES and targets 2. Additional measures • 2 a. Extension of existing measures • 2 b. Completely new measures DETAILED REPORTING • Not elsewhere reported

Key Type of Measures (WFD) • 25 KTM’s • Measures for MSFD categories •

Key Type of Measures (WFD) • 25 KTM’s • Measures for MSFD categories • 1 a, 1 b : existing measures • 2 a : extend existing measures Examples of the relevance of WFD KTM’s to MSFD KTM (WFD) Relevance for MSFD 1 Construction or upgrades of Reduction of nutrient loads & wastewater treatment plants solid particles (D 5, D 10) 2 Reduce nutrient pollution from Reduction of nutrient loads (D 5) agriculture 3 Reduce pesticides pollution from Reduction of contaminants agriculture. loads (D 8, D 9)

Key Type of Measures (MSFD) • 12 additional KTM’s • Measures under MSFD category

Key Type of Measures (MSFD) • 12 additional KTM’s • Measures under MSFD category 2 b (new) • KTM’s selected to cover • Main pressures to the marine environment (not covered under WFD KTM’s) • Cross-cutting measures (e. g. research, economic incentives)

Proposed new KTMs for MSFD reporting 26. Address physical loss of seabed habitats in

Proposed new KTMs for MSFD reporting 26. Address physical loss of seabed habitats in the marine environment 27. Address physical damage to the marine environment 28. Address inputs of energy to the marine environment, incl. underwater noise 29. Address marine littler 30. Address interferences with hydrological processes in the marine environment 31. Address contamination by hazardous substances (synthetic substances, nonsynthetic substances, radio-nuclides) and the systematic and/or intentional release of substances in the marine environment from sea-based or air-based sources 32. Address nutrient and organic matter inputs to the marine environment from sea -based or air-based sources 33. Address the introduction and spread of non-indigenous species 34. Address biological disturbances in the marine environment from the selective extraction of species including incidental non-target catches 35. Address other types of biological disturbance, including death, injury, disturbance and translocation of marine species, introduction of geneticallymodified individuals and introduction of microbial pathogens 36. Spatial Protection Measures for the marine environment 37. Economic incentives (Annex VI MSFD) 38. Research, improvement of knowledge base reducing uncertainty in the marine environment

Expected products From Po. M reporting MS COM Reporting sheets (data-based, quantitative) National fact sheets (descriptive) Assessment report (Art. 16) Extended WFD reporting (to cover MSFD needs)

Reporting sheets: KTM level KTM Targets (Art. 10) & Pressures Gap analysis Exceptions (art.

Reporting sheets: KTM level KTM Targets (Art. 10) & Pressures Gap analysis Exceptions (art. 14) List of specific measures Pre-defined quantitative indicators i. e. monitor progress towards • achieving targets • reducing pressures • Implementing measures Type of measures (1 a, 1 b, 2 a, 2 b) Indicator values Value of 0 = target achieved = measure implemented

Reporting fields on individual measures based on fields in WFD reporting sheets • Under

Reporting fields on individual measures based on fields in WFD reporting sheets • Under WFD, info on individual measures available at national level; Not reported to COM • Fields to be covered: – – – – – Measure Code / Measure Name Type of measure (1 a, 1 b, 2 a, 2 b) Geographic coverage of the measure Measure description (if needed) Expected contribution to MSFD GES, Targets and Pressures Any potential obstacles to its successful implementation Lead organisation for implementation of the measure Partners assisting in the implementation of the measure Cost and financing of measure (has financing been secured) Sources of Funding

Outline for national fact sheets For each descriptor and associated targets • • General

Outline for national fact sheets For each descriptor and associated targets • • General questions Specific questions Identification of new measures Other questions

Extended reporting under WFD for MSFD + • Fit MSFD needs into WFD 2016

Extended reporting under WFD for MSFD + • Fit MSFD needs into WFD 2016 Reporting Guidance • 6 questions already in WFD guidance • 3 additional questions proposed – link measure to descriptor, Annex III categories (pressures, impact, features) and MSFD targets • How? : By proposing « reporting boxes » to WFD guidance Schema element: MSFDRelevance Field type / facets: Yes, No, Unclear Guidance: Required: Is this measure relevant for the purpose of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive?

Outcome of WG DIKE - • • • OVERALL: Approach welcomed, with a need

Outcome of WG DIKE - • • • OVERALL: Approach welcomed, with a need to clarify following: Who is filling the boxes: WFD or MSFD unit? Discrepancies with Po. M recommendation KTM approach for MSFD – List of KTM's – Illustrate with examples – Add coordination measures, awareness raising, … Clarify how to assign a measure to a specific KTM Format of national / regional fact sheets How to phase in measures from other policies than WFD? (fisheries, off-shore pollution, natura 2000) - Look for solution on management measures, licenses etc… Financing of measures KTM Art. 16 assessment – sufficient to achieve targets (more flexible than WFD KTM "indicators") – Illustration by case studies Regional cooperation better in paper Timeline after Nov 2014 up to 2016 (road map)
