7th Framework Programme of the European Union (2007-20013) Priority 6. Environment (including Global Change)
by dr. Danuta Maria Antosiewicz, National Contact Point for EU Research Programmes

Objective
To promote sustainable management of the natural and human environment and its resources by advancing our knowledge on the interactions between the biosphere, ecosystems and human activities, and developing new technologies, tools and services, in order to address in an integrated way global environmental issues. Emphasis will be put on prediction of climate, ecological, earth and ocean systems changes, on tools and on technologies, for monitoring, prevention and mitigation of environmental pressures and risks including on health and for the sustainability of the natural and man-made environment.

Approach
Protecting the environment is essential for the quality of life of current and future generations as well as for economic growth. Given that the Earths natural resources and the man-made environment are under pressure from growing population, urbanisation, continuous expansion of the agriculture, transport and energy sectors, as well as climate variability and warming at local, regional and global scales, the challenge facing the EU is to ensure continuous and sustainable growth while at the same time reducing negative environmental impacts. EU-wide cooperation is motivated by the facts that countries, regions and cities face common environmental problems and that critical mass is needed given the scale, scope and high level of complexity of environmental research. Such cooperation also facilitates common planning, use of connected and inter-operable databases, and the development of common indicators, of assessment methodologies and of coherent and large scale observation and forecasting systems. Furthermore international co-operation is necessary for the completion of knowledge and the promotion of better management at a global level. Research under this topic , will contribute to the implementation of international commitments of EU and Member States such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kyoto and Montreal protocols, postKyoto protocol initiatives, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity, the UN Convention to Combat Desertification, and the World Summit on Sustainable Development 2002, including the EU Water Initiative (as well as promoting sustainable production and consumption). It will also contribute to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Group on the Earth Observation (GEO) initiative and take into account the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. In addition, it will support the research needs arising from existing and emerging EU legislation and policies, the implementation of the 6th Environmental Action Programme, associated thematic strategies and other emerging strategies (e.g. the mercury strategy), and the action plans on Environmental Technologies and on Environment and Health. The promotion of innovative environmental technologies will contribute to achieving sustainable use of resources, to mitigating and adapting to climate change, and to protecting the ecosystems and the man-made environment. Research will also contribute to technological developments that will improve the market positioning of European enterprises, in particular of SMEs, in areas such as environmental technologies. European Technology Platforms, such as those on water supply and sanitation, sustainable chemistry, construction, and forestry, confirm the need for EU level action and the implementation of relevant parts of their research agendas will be supported in the activities below. Co-ordination of national programmes will be reinforced by broadening and deepening the scope of existing ERANETs in environmental research, including a joint implementation of programmes in Baltic Sea research and new ERA-NETs. Specific attention will be paid to strengthening the dissemination of EU research outcomes -also through the exploitation of synergies with complementary funding mechanisms at EU and Member State levels - and to stimulating their uptake by relevant end-users, targeting in particular policy makers.

Activities I. Climate change, pollution, and risks


Pressures on environment and climate
Integrated research on the functioning of climate and the earth system is needed in order to observe and analyse how these systems evolve and predict future evolution. This will enable the development of effective adaptation and mitigation measures to climate change and its impacts. Advanced climate change models from the global to sub-regional scales will be developed and applied to assess changes, potential impacts and critical thresholds. Changes in atmospheric composition and in the water cycle will be studied and risk based approaches will be developed taking into account changes in droughts, storms and floods patterns. Pressures on environmental quality and on climate from pollution of the air, water and soil will be investigated as well as the interactions between the atmosphere, the stratospheric ozone layer, land surface, ice and oceans. Consideration will be given to feedback mechanisms and abrupt changes (e.g. ocean circulation), and to impacts on biodiversity and ecosystems.

7th Framework Programme of the European Union (2007-20013) Priority 6. Environment (including Global Change)
by dr. Danuta Maria Antosiewicz, National Contact Point for EU Research Programmes

Overall objectives: To improve the understanding of the functioning and evolution of the earth and climate system, to better quantify changes in atmospheric composition and in the water cycle and pressures on climate and environmental quality, to reduce the uncertainties and to improve predictions of future climate and climate change impacts, and to give a rational basis for effective mitigation and adaptation measures in response to climate changes. Expected impacts: Improved understanding of the functioning and evolution of the earth climate and system and improved detail and quality of our knowledge of future climate and environmental conditions. The research will substantially underpin the implementation of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kyoto and Montreal protocols, post-Kyoto protocol initiatives, and EU environmental policies and strategies (ECCP-II, WFD, thematic strategies). 1. The Earth system and climate Objectives To improve the understanding of the functioning of the earth system with special emphasis on the major processes and feedback in the climate system. Emphasis will be on processes and dynamics, which may cause changes or may need to be better understood and quantified in the earth system context. Research will integrate observation, process studies, analyses, modeling, data assimilation and reconstruction of palaeoclimatic and palaeoenvironmental records. 2. Emissions and Pressures Objectives Underpinning of rational measures to mitigate the impacts of human activity on climate and environmental quality. Research will quantify effects of anthropogenic and natural atmospheric emissions, transport and transformations of gases and aerosols, including greenhouse gases and ozone depleting substances, stratospheric ozone depletion and changes in UV radiation levels. Aerosol effects on radiation, clouds and the water cycle and other interactions will be included. Interactions between soil and water pollution and climate changes will also be addressed. Changes in air quality on local to global scales will be considered in the perspective of trends in emissions and urbanization (mega-cities) and long-range transport. 3. The Carbon cycle: Integration and interactions Objectives To better quantify the direct system response to increasing atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and feedback with land-use in the perspective of climate change. The main emphasis will be on a better quantification of exchanges within the interlinked Carbon, Nitrogen and water cycles based on experimental studies, in situ and remote observation, monitoring, modeling and data assimilation; as well as on the integration of oceanic, terrestrial and atmospheric budgets. Regional greenhouse gas budgets will be assessed for Europe and for regions considered particularly vulnerable to change. The terms in the global carbon cycle (e.g. role of ecosystems and soil, oceanic biosphere and oceanic acidification, exchanges with atmosphere) will be better quantified for present and future conditions through observation and modeling. 4. Future Climate Objectives To better quantify changes of climate and climate variability on global and regional scales, to reduce the uncertainties in predictions of climate change, extreme events and risks of abrupt changes, and to improve the capabilities for assessment of related impacts. The emphasis will be on further development and application of advanced climate and earth system models from global to local scales, including ensemble integration, quantification of uncertainties and the integration with models for specific impacts such as for catchment hydrology, agricultural production and ecosystem vulnerability. 5. Climate Change Impacts Objectives To better assess probable impacts of climate change over the coming decades to centuries. The aim is to provide a rational basis for adaptation and mitigation strategies. Research will target impacts related to changes in mean climate, seasonality, climatic variability, water resources and extremes. It will also take into account other concurrent global change procedures such as land-use changes. Vulnerability of the physical environment (e.g. polar ice cover), ecosystems (land and ocean), economic sectors (e.g. agriculture, fisheries and forestry) and of regions will be assessed and integrated observation and modeling will be used to quantify impacts, uncertainties and critical thresholds.

6. Response strategies: Mitigation and Adaptation Objectives Development and application of methodologies for the integrated assessment of adaptation and mitigation measures to climate change and its impacts. Research will address the natural and socio-economic impacts of climate change, responses, adaptation (e.g. for vulnerable regions) and mitigation. This will explicitly deal with risk tipping points within different time horizons. Analysis will include resilience and potential adaptation and comparing with mitigation strategies related to all greenhouse gases and other sensitive components of the climate system. Novel responses to climate change will be studied including emergency responses to abrupt events. Special consideration will be given to assessment of socio-economic scenarios and the impact of technological development. Analysis of the effectiveness and consistency of present and future international policies as response strategies will be included.

Environment and health


Multidisciplinary research on interactions of environmental risk factors and human health is needed to support the Environment and Health action plan and the integration of public health concerns and disease characterisation related to emerging environmental risks. Research will focus on multiple exposures via different exposure routes, identification of pollution sources and new or emerging environmental stressors (e.g. indoor and outdoor air, electromagnetic fields, noise, and exposure to toxic substances) and their potential health effects. Research will also aim at integrating research activities on human biomonitoring regarding scientific aspects, methodologies and tools to develop a coordinated and coherent approach. It will include European cohort studies, with attention to vulnerable population groups, and methods and tools for improved risk characterisation, assessment and comparisons of risks and health impacts. Research will develop biomarkers and modelling tools taking into account combined exposures, variations in vulnerability and uncertainty. It will also deliver methods and decision support tools (indicators, cost-benefit and multi-criteria analyses, health impact assessment, burden of disease and sustainability analysis) for risk analysis, management and communication, and for policy development and analysis.

Natural hazards
Managing natural disasters requires a multi risk approach. There is a need for improved knowledge, methods and integrated framework for the assessment of hazards, vulnerability and risks. Furthermore mapping, prevention and mitigation strategies including consideration of economic and social factors need to be developed. Disasters related to climate (such as storms, droughts, forest fires, landslides and floods), and geological hazards (such as earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis) will be studied. This research will allow the underlying processes to be better understood, and prediction and forecasting methods to be improved on the basis of a probabilistic approach. It will also underpin the development of early warning and information systems. Societal repercussions of major natural hazards will be quantified. Overall objectives: To contribute to the international Strategy for disaster reduction and support the related environmental policies as the European civil protection and be complementary to other EC research programmes more related to crisis management and operationality. For individual hazards and for multi-hazards the risk reduction chain and its components will be integrated within a robust and comprehensive framework. This will include: Hazard assessment considering processes and triggering factors. Hazard detection and Prediction, Vulnerability assessment including societal impacts, and Risk management and mitigation. Climate related and hydro-meteorological hazards such as floods, storms, mass movement, drought, forest fires as well as geological hazards such as earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis will be studies. 1. Hazard assessment, processes and triggering factors Objectives To develop innovative assessment methodologies, including future scenarios and their probabilities; to consider where relevant the interactions and triggering effects amongst hazards in a multi-hazard concept; to capitalize and improve our understanding of the hazard origination causes, their development processes and mechanisms, the analysis of their occurrence, severity and frequency. 2. Hazard Detection and Prediction Objectives Development and improvement of hazard observations and data integration/homogenization capacities; promote integrated multi-hazard monitoring strategies; develop data processing schemes for event detection,

characterization, quantification and threshold definition for alert; in order to increase the reliability of early warning; develop methods for uncertainty evaluation and false alarm indentification; develop concepts and knowledge that will underpin the development of hazard specific or multi-hazards early warning and information systems. 3. Vulnerability assessment and Societal impacts Objectives Develop a conceptual framework, tools and methodologies and pertinent parameters for vulnerability assessment in terms of: physical vulnerability, human, social and functional vulnerability, economical vulnerability, consider impacts on humans, ecosystems and structures, develop risks scenario simulations, probabilities and uncertainties, exposure quantification; sensitivity and resilience of a system experiencing an hazardous event, analyses of possible vulnerability reduction. Study the barriers in implementing know-how. 4. Risk management and Mitigation Objectives Coping with risks, single as well as multi-risks, needs a vision on how to live with, assess and manage the risks. Effort will go towards improved risk analysis, risk evaluation tools and methods. In multi-risk situation develop comparable methods and procedures to estimate risks and setting priorities in mitigation options. Assess and improve reliability, effectiveness and efficiency of structural and non-structural mitigation measures like spatial planning and mapping, cost/benefit analysis of risks reduction measures that account for the economic, ecological and social costs imposed by natural hazard events. Characterize uncertainties at the different level of the risks decision process; promote the development of educational strategies and products.

II. Sustainable Management of Resources


Conservation and sustainable management of natural and man-made resources
Research activities will be targeted to improve the knowledge basis and develop advanced models and tools needed for the sustainable management of resources and the creation of sustainable consumption patterns. This will enable the prediction of the behaviour of ecosystems and their restoration, and the mitigation of degradation and loss of important structural and functional elements of ecosystems (for biodiversity, water, soil and marine resources). Research on ecosystem modelling will take account of protection and conservation practices. Innovative approaches to develop economic activities from ecosystem services will be promoted. Approaches will be developed to prevent desertification, land degradation and erosion, and to stop biodiversity loss. Research will also address sustainable management of forests and the urban environment including planning, and waste management. The research will benefit from and contribute to the development of open, distributed, inter-operable data management and information systems and will underpin assessments, foresight, and services related to natural resources and their use.

Evolution of marine environments


Specific research is required to improve our understanding of the impacts of human activities on the ocean and seas and on the resources of the marine environment, including the pollution and eutrophication of regional seas and coastal areas. Research activities in aquatic environments, deep sea ecosystems and seabed will be carried out in order to observe, monitor and predict the behaviour of this environment and enhance understanding of the sea and the sustainable use of ocean resources. The impact of human activities on the ocean will be assessed through integrated approaches taking into account marine biodiversity, ecosystem processes and services, ocean circulation and seabed geology.

III. Environmental Technologies


Environmental technologies for the sustainable management and conservation of the natural and man-made environment
New or improved environmental technologies are needed to reduce the environmental impact of human activities, protect the environment and manage resources more efficiently and to develop new products, processes and services more beneficial for the environment than existing alternatives. Research will target in particular: technologies preventing or reducing environmental risks and disasters, technologies preventing or reducing environmental risks and disasters; technologies promoting sustainable production and consumption; technologies for managing resources or treating pollution more efficiently, in relation to water, soil, air, sea and other natural resources, or waste; technologies for the environmentally sound and sustainable management of the human environment including the built environment, urban areas, landscape, as well as for the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage.

Assessment tools for sustainable development


Tools are needed to quantitatively assess the environmental and research policy contribution to competitiveness and sustainable development, including assessments of market-based and regulatory approaches as well as the impacts of current trends in production and consumption patterns. Such tools will include models that consider the links between the economy, environment and society and hence beneficial and efficient strategies of adaptation and prevention. Research will also seek to improve existing indicators and develop new ones to assess sustainable development policy priorities, and to analyse the linkages between them, taking into account the existing set of EU sustainable development indicators. The analysis of technology, socio-economic drivers, externalities and governance as well as foresight studies, will be included. Areas of application include land use and marine policies and the economic, political and social conflicts related to climate change. Expected impacts: Better integrated policy making through explicit and operational consideration of environmental, competitiveness and sustainable development impacts. A more informed implementation of the EU Sustainable Development Strategy Better determined Sustainable Development Indicators, as well as indicators in relation to the Millenium Development Goals (MDGs)

International cooperation
Environmental problems have invariably a transboundary, regional or global dimension and international cooperation will be an important aspect in this theme. Particular areas relate to EU international commitments, such as Climate Change, Biodiversity, Desertification and chemicals and wastes conventions as well as the Johannesburg Summit decisions on sustainable development as well as other regional conventions. Attention will also be given to relevant research actions stemming from EU environmental strategies and action plans . Scientific and technological partnerships with developing countries will contribute to the Millennium Development Goals in several fields (e.g. reverse the loss of environmental resources, improvement of water management, supply and sanitation, and facing the environmental challenges of urbanisation), areas where SMEs could also play a key role. Particular attention will be given to the relation between global environmental issues and the regional and local development problems relating to natural resources, biodiversity, land use, natural and man-made hazards and risks, climate change, environmental technologies, environment and health as well as on policy analysis tools. Cooperation with industrialised countries will enhance access to global research excellence. The establishment of the GEOSS for Earth observation will promote international co-operation for understanding Earth systems and sustainability issues, and co-ordinated data collection for scientific and policy purposes.

Responding to emerging needs and unforeseen policy needs


Research on emerging needs in this theme may address questions such as the interactions between people, ecosystems and the biosphere or new risks related to natural, man induced and technologically induced disasters. Support to respond to unforeseen environmental policy needs could, for example, relate to sustainability impact assessments of new EU policies such as in environment, maritime policy, standards and regulations.

AREA 1 CLIMATE CHANGE AND WATER RESOURCES


Research scope:1.1 Understanding ecosystem dynamics and developing approaches to enable functional carrying capacity
Description:
The goal is to enhance the knowledge on ecosystems carrying capacity, its importance for providing goods and services and for sustainable development. Measures and indices for assessment of carrying capacity of natural and man-made ecosystems need to be developed. It is necessary to develop scenarios for the impact of global and especially climate change and to investigate to what degree, and how, these effects may be compensated by control of natural ecosystems dynamics and human intervention. Interplays between biocenosis and their abiotic environments (water, soil) should be considered as a basis for quantifying ecosystem processes and functions. Successful strategies to adapt and compensate global changes ought to address a variety of natural and manmodified ecosystems on different spatial and temporal scales.

Rationale/justification:
Degradation of landscapes is linked with degradation of soil, decrease of water retentiveness and biodiversity. The understanding of water, plant, soil interactions at different ecosystems is the key to understanding and optimization of landscape processes, controlling water retentiveness, restoration of biodiversity thus improving ecosystem goods, services and achieving good ecological status. Integrated knowledge of interactions between hydrologic, geologic, soil and biological processes are basic to quantification of ecosystem processes and functions, and evaluation of functional carrying capacity and sustainability. This is particularly important in the face of progressing global changes, which modify the abiotic framework for ecosystem functioning.

Research issues to be addressed:


Understanding Soil-Plant-Atmosphere (SPA) processes and interactions and developing interdisciplinary approaches to quantifying processes (governing the transfer of water through the SPA continuum); Analysis of the SPA system responses to global changes; Assessment of global change impact on biodiversity and the consequences of pest and alien species; Understanding the impact of global change on the surface water - groundwater interface and soil water dynamics Assessing the role of surface water - groundwater interface, soil water dynamics and retention capacity of soils in extreme events such as floods and droughts; Understanding the impact of agriculture and forest management on ecosystem dynamics; Integrated understanding and assessment of carrying capacity of natural and man-made ecosystems.

Research scope: 1.2 Adaptation and mitigation strategies for use of water resources to promote sustainable development (societal stability, economic development and ecosystem protection)
Description:
The impact of global, especially climate change, on water resources and the different consequences to a wide variety of users need to be assessed and understood. Based on this knowledge, strategies and (possibly proactive) measures, policies and legal frameworks should be developed to support different users (e.g., farmers, fishermen, forest owners/users) in improving their practices towards sustainable use of water resources (e.g., human consumption, agriculture) and sustainable economic development (e.g., fishing, aquaculture, tourism). These measures should address incentives for the target groups, e.g., through developing mechanisms enabling them to profit from the functions they help to secure. This approach requires in-depth analysis of natural, economic, social and legal systems and solutions, for which there is not yet enough information and process knowledge. Such an approach increases appeal of new solutions to the public, enables potential conflict resolutions and changes social perception of environmental measures, which is especially vital for tackling global changes (such as climate uncertainty, population growth, market change, urbanization, landscape degradation, biodiversity decline).

Description of Areas and Scopes


as the basis for potential FP7 topics identification

Rationale/justification: By modification of hydrological and ecological cycles, global climate changes will also impact societal stability and opportunities of economic development. Both environmental and economic practices in water resources have to be adapted to changing environment and opportunities, in order to ensure sustainability. There is a need to recognize the basic processes that influence sustainability and develop mitigation strategies. Research issues to be addressed: Mitigation strategies for control extreme events - floods and droughts (e.g., optimization of hydro-technical infrastructure, landscape planning, assessment of consequences for areas of different use urban, others); Adaption of production in aquaculture, agriculture, forestry; Adaptation of use of urban areas (e.g., sea level rise, erosion, flood risk assessment) in the face of global climate change; Mitigation strategies for pollution control; Strategies for human welfare and sustainability; Strategies facilitating the participation of land managers and other users in developing mitigation measures.

Research scope 1.3 : Development of tools to improve integrated modeling of global change effects and feedbacks at river basin scale
Description: In order to provide integrated models ranging from the entire catchment area to the recipients, model interfaces and ecological effect modeling needs to be further developed. Quality data based on standardized protocols (e.g., sampling frequency, spatial distribution of sampling networks, chemical analysis, field measurements) need to be integrated into a unified database. Rationale/justification: Application of advanced techniques and model development is necessary for understanding and predicting global changes and their effects on water resources functioning and use. The challenge is to achieve truly harmonized data formats and fully integrated models from rain to sea. Research issues to be addressed: Application of remote sensing for water dynamics evaluation; Definition of criteria for identification of adaptive measures; Definition and harmonization of protocols; Incorporation of harmonized model interphases in models using concepts such as the open modeling interphase (Open MI); Development of improved descriptions of interfaces between model compartments such as unsaturated and saturated zones or groundwater and surface water.

AREA 2 WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT


Research Scope 2.1: Managing water demand in the context of multiple objectives (water for people, industry, agriculture, ecosystems)
Description:
Trade-offs between Water Framework Directive goals and other water-related policy goals and economic issues related to water quality, water scarcity, flood risk and waterway management and planning need to be addressed in future research. Water resources management will have to meet multiple, often potentially conflicting, objectives. There is a need for developing methodologies on basin scale in various geographical regions facing a number of various issues. Recognition should be given to environmental and economic risk assessment and the full-scale integration of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) into long-term land development planning, an aspect that has not been sufficiently addressed, yet.

Rationale/justification:
Meeting multiple objectives, managing droughts, floods, erosion and water quality, is the major challenge for IWRM. IWRM also has to meet demands of people, industry and agriculture, as well as ecosystems needs, while it has to assure good water resources status according to the Water Framework Directive requirements. There is the need to develop methodologies for analyzing and managing supply-demand systems at basin scale, taking into account the multiple objectives. The demand itself must be subject to a constant scrutiny in the view of ecosystem functions and social context, as it may be changing in the future. (This may be the case due to unsustainable infrastructures developments in areas with limited water resources, change of economic circumstances etc.) Costefficient management schemes can only be developed based on analyses of development scenarios and assessment of potential economic and environmental risks.

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Identification of multiple objectives of water demand and addressing them in integrated management plans based on sound (mathematical) models; Development of supply-demand assessment methodologies; Development of concepts of an area-specific reasonable demand (in the long run); Full-scale integration of IRWM into long-term land planning; Managing droughts, floods, erosion, ecology and water quality as major challenge for IWRM; Modeling of economic and societal impact of technical measures taken, i.e.: development of multiple objective decision support systems.

Research Scope 2.2: Elaborating measures for improving water quality and quantity
Description:
Identification of a hierarchy of factors determining deterioration of water quality and hydrological extremes problems; Development of joint and integrated measures (environmental; structural v non-structural, technological v ecosystem etc) meeting potentially conflicting issues; Elaborating measures for integrated management of water quality and quantity and thus improved management of water resources.

Rationale/justification:
Water availability both in terms of amount and sufficient quality - is still a critical issue in many regions of the world. Addressing both these issues simultaneously requires setting objectives and hierarchy of problems and measures (technological, ecological, ecohydrological) in a particular region/basin. There is an urgent need for transdisciplinary, cost-efficient approaches. Ecosystem biotechnologies offer promising approaches addressing both the water quality and quantity issues at the same time (e.g., floodplains management, water retention in wetlands) and meeting also the requirement of low-cost applications. Possibilities of using such new, low-cost approaches and technologies should be fostered and based on dedicated model-based decision support systems.

Description of Areas and Scopes


as the basis for potential FP7 topics identification

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Assessment of the efficiency of individual measures and their combined synergistic/antagonistic effects; Developing a multiobjective programme for water resources management based on integrated measures at a basin scale, addressing water quantity and quality, with flexibility to buffer extreme events; Coordination of measures in transboundary basins, solving potential conflicts; Identifying gaps and enhancement of knowledge on cost-efficient ecosystem biotechnologies; Water retentiveness, floods and droughts control, also by landscape patchiness development and increasing the water retention capacity of soils; Assessment of self-purification potential; New ecotoxicological methods for assessing water quality; Groundwater remediation.

Research Scope 2.3: Harmonization of technological measures with ecosystem properties as a new management tool for IWRM, implementation of WFD, and other water-related Directives
Description:
The project aims at developing sustainability-driven, proactive measures and policy to integrate functioning of existing and planned hydrotechnical infrastructure with synergic integration of various ecotechnological measures at a basin scale. Research needs to address issues related to water, biota, soil, and unsaturated and saturated zones. It also addresses all types of water bodies, including inland waters and coastal areas as well as wetlands and all transitional systems. According to the ecohydrological approach, operational procedures for the hydrotechnological infrastructures are to be developed, and multiple goals need to be addressed, e.g.,: social (e.g., flood protection, water supply), economic (e.g., hydropower production) and ecological (e.g., biodiversity conservation, re-establishment/conserving connectivity between terrestrial and aquatic habitats, and many others). These methods may also address maintenance and remediation of quality water resources, while concomitantly improve ecosystem services and enable creation of positive socio-economic feedbacks between environmental quality and society.

Rationale/justification:
Current research and methods are focused on environmental protection (elimination of threats) and do not include the opportunities - enhancement of ecosystem carrying capacity. Gaining a better understanding of ecosystem approaches will create opportunities for a better and more cost effective water resources management and lowering of its costs. So far such an approach seems to be still not satisfactory developed and still needs quantification in different types of systems.

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Assessment of potential given by complementing ecosystem approaches with the existing socio-economic and technological systems (e.g., industry, agriculture; tourism and recreation; hydrotechnical structure, engineering; economics, sociology, etc); Ecohydrology; Assessment and enhancement of absorbing capacity of various ecosystems (e.g., based on different typology, climate and degradation gradient); Contribution to Water Framework Directive, Groundwater Framework Directive, and other water-related Directives and legislation; Analysis of best practices from the past (e. g. systems of water collecting channels in the forests of d Izvoarele Nerei, Romania, or Banska Stiavnica, Slovakia, other regions); Harmonisation of emissions standards with receiving water ecological status and capacity (avoid excessive costs where ecosystem management is more cost effective than technological solutions); Development of knowledge and data on soil ecosystem buffering capacities; Development of knowledge on unsaturated and saturated zones buffering capacities; Development of knowledge on wetland buffering capacities; adjustment of technical measures (increasing potential/capacity of ecosystems, setting up IWRM to develop a holistic approach including both technical and ecological aspects, harmonization of technologies with selfpurification potential of a given system, optimizing management strategies, defining measures/limits for applying technologies)

AREA 3 ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES RELATED TO WATER (AND SOIL)- Working document


Research scope: 3.1: Promoting Sustainable Production and Consumption for Preventing and Reducing Environmental Risk, Pollution Control and Demand-Supply Balance
Description:
Multidisciplinary research is required to create, develop, improve, demonstrate and evaluate emerging, existing and alternative sustainable environmental technologies. To meet the sustainability requirements, the technologies need to address a water demand-supply balance, on the one hand, and reduce negative impacts on the environment (e.g., pollution control) on the other. Plans for sustainable production and consumption should be based on an assessment of environmental and economic risk, and involve plans for promotion of new technologies.

Rationale/justification:
Fresh water is becoming an ever increasingly scarce resource, requiring both the control of its use (demand and supply) and reduction of the negative impact of human activities. Especially nowadays, when standard of living and human aspirations continues to increase, the strategic importance of fresh water resources increases. The necessity of identifying technologies for the most efficient and water-saving production and consumption remains one of the crucial issues in sustainable water use and management.

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Assessing the total water-cycle, identifying specific problems in crucial areas (e.g., urban, agriculture) and closing water cycles; New technologies for production and consumption, including environmental and economical assessment; New technologies for pollution assessment; Water re-use in industry, for domestic purpose and rational use of water in buildings; Rainwater harvesting and grey water use for compensating water cycle instability in urban areas.

Research scope 3.2 : Improve integrated system technologies to resolve water problems, establish ecohydrology based technologies to eliminate water quality degradation and enhance remediation methods.
Description:
Integrated system technologies are required to resolve water problems and address issues of aquatic systems degradation. Their identification requires detailed analysis of human activities in relation to environmental characteristics (hydrology, soil, hydrogeology plant cover, biodiversity). The criteria for optimization of landscape patchiness in relation to biodiversity restoration, water retentiveness enhancement, and optimization of societal gains has to be addressed. The above factors, superimposed the area of high compensatory potential using such methods as satellite, infra-red and mathematical modeling provides a basis for the technologies identification including new remediation methods. These should reduce threats and enhance the opportunities to achieve sustainable water resources through enhancing the capacities of the environment by applying hydrology-biota dual regulation, as well as capacities of the economic systems.

Rationale/justification:
Water is a driving force for both ecosystems and human societies, which are impacted by increasing uncontrolled developments and uncertainty of the climatic processes. These negative impacts may be to some extent compensated by mitigation technologies, which should be based on a proper estimation of the capacities of the environment (hydrological characteristics, soil, vegetation, biodiversity), constructions/infrastructure, economic and social systems. Application environmental technologies and new, advanced remediation techniques increase the efficiency and decreases costs of measures.

Description of Areas and Scopes


as the basis for potential FP7 topics identification

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Improve integrated system technologies to resolve water problems and ecohydrology based technology to eliminate water quality degradation in aquatic systems; Improved and new remediation technologies; Enhancing soils environmental and ecological capacities by use of natural soil conditioners for ground water protection and increasing soil water storage capacity; New technologies, e.g.nano-scale particles and nanotechnologies for soil- and groundwater remediation; Identification of criteria for optimization of landscape patchiness in relation to biodiversity restoration, water retentiveness enhancement, and optimization of societal gains.

Research scope: 3.3: Novel approaches to the design, construction and operation of water infrastructure assets and their harmonisation with environmental technologies for mitigation of water stress and adaptation to extreme hydro-climatic events in critical areas (coastal zones, urban and industrial areas, agriculture).
Description:
Development of operation procedures of water infrastructure, new technologies and constructions related to water and their harmonization with environmental biotechnologies for mitigation of water stress and adaptation to extreme hydro-climatic events are required, combined with the delineation of appropriate remedial measures and a strengthened control of new industrial installations, solid waste landfills and infrastructure development projects. Environmental risk assessment and risk management of water resource development need to be included impairing water quality and aquatic ecosystems in concerned areas, and development of compensatory measures .

Rationale/justification:
Introduction of the precautionary approach with a focus on pollution minimization and prevention through use of new technologies is crucial but not sufficient for successful water quality and aquatic environment management. Technological measures have to be harmonized with ecosystem biotechnologies, and altogether be integrated in a comprehensive planning. To mitigate water stress, there is a need to harmonize construction and operation of water infrastructure with environmental technologies, using organisms life traits and diversity of life strategies and adaptations for enhancement of technology and technical solutions in extreme conditions. There is also a need to identify and address catchment and ecosystem weak points - erosion, water level modifications, changes in land use intensity.

Research issues to be addressed (examples):


Hydro - technical construction management; Harmonizing the ecosystem properties with hydrotechnical infrastructure for water quality and ecological status of freshwater & estuarine and coastal ecosystem; Mitigation of water stress in coastal areas; Sustainable water management in urban, industries and agricultural areas; Restoration of degraded water resources; Adaptation and mitigation of extreme hydro-climatic events; Enhancement of grey water use for agriculture and industry and improvement of urban environment; Development of environmentally sound aquaculture technologies adjusted to availability of water resources at local, national and regional scales.

Further proposed Research Scopes that need elaboration

Research scope 3.4 : Cost-efficient techniques, criteria and indicators for evaluation and improvement of water and soil status in Europe biological, chemical and physical aspects Research scope 3.5 : Developing and promoting technologies for assessing and reducing environmental risk and pollution control (concerning water and soil)

Contribution:
There are more than 40 floodplain lakes along the Daugava River in Latvia. Seasonal water level fluctuation is strongly influenced by amount of snow accumulated in the Daugavas drainage area during winter, the air temperature increase rate in spring or the ice jams in the Daugavas valley during spring floods. Because of large and prolonged spring floods, a significant influence of the Daugavas flood pulse on the plankton and benthos communities of these lakes was expected.

Contribution:
The current use of water should be changed fast taking into consideration ecosystem and conservation elements in a more pronounced way in Europe. I have a background to work with three highly threatened animal groups with many protected species, Decapoda, Amphibia and Reptilia, with different water needs. Besides carrying out basic research to understand related ecological processes and to balance water use in a conservation-minded way I also want to promote the education aspect of the project.

Contribution:
In Romanian rural areas nowadays there is an excess of water (flooding, heavy rain), followed by drought. Excess water in soil means terrain slides. Establishment of large water supply networks in rural areas means energy to pump water and sewage. Proportionally grows the greenhouse gases emissions followed by climate changes. We promote the rational use of freatic waters and the storage of rainwaters. Stored rainwater can accumulate heat and solve partialy energy problems of independent homes.

Contribution:
Impact of climate and landuse change on flood protection. Flood protection was established in the past under different engineering, social, economic, landuse and climate conditions from those to be expected. Large uncertainties could affect risk situations and policies for mitigation of flood hazard due to climate change. Additional uncertainty is the lack of knowledge on the effects of landuse change associated with adaptation and changing societal, economic and ecological priorities.

Contribution:
In last decades,soil erosion become one of the major problems resulting from mismanagement of agricultural land, causing economical and environmental damage. Enlargement of scale, intensification,specialisation and mechanisation of agriculture are factors which often lead to problems such as soil erosion and associated water pollution with nutrients and pesticides. Technology for estimatiing rates of soil erosion has emerged as a major tool for solving erosion problems and conservation planning.

Contribution:
Dynamic GIS-embedded PolFlow model describes fluxes of Nitrogen and Phosphorus in large river basins including Gulf of Finland Drainage Basin. In addition to pressure factors the model relates climate factors such as temperature, precipitation, evapotranspiration and landcover with pollutant loads and concentrations. The model serves as a suitable tool describing the effects of climate change scenarios to surface water quality. My proposed contribution would be modelling these processes.

Today's water system in Malta is inadequate. The growing population, econonomic development, increasing degradation of clean freshwater resourses and the lack of rain make the current system unsustainable for the world of tomorrow. Internationally the impact of climate change is exacerbating this scenario in many parts of the world particularly in large metropolitan areas. There is a growing need for new and/or improved ways to recycle water.

Contribution:
As well known UNEP have urged nations to increase conservation areas and take measures to protect and manage them in a sustainable way. Wetlands and valuable areas are under ever-increasing pressure from human activities (van Dam et al. (1998); Florencio et al. (2001); Karako et al. (2003)) and are heavily influenced by antropogenic pollution sources of the settlements and agricultural areas around very important lake. I'd like to discuss eloborating water quality around such protected areas.

Contribution:
Important aspect of implementation of the WFD is integration of spatial relevant water protection measures within the spatial development documents. There are several obstacles to sucessfull integration: (1) pressure for urbanization; (2) low awerness and knowledge of people about water ecoloy and water dynamics; (3) accuracy of data - the operational level of IWRM is a river sub-basin, while in spatial plnning is a plot; (4) lack of good spatially relevant water protection measures;

Contribution:
The maintenance and possible increase of soil fertility to sustain enhanced crop productivity and to counteract the soil nutrients depletion can be achieved by conceiving integrated plant nutrition systems, implying the optimal use of all sources of plant nutrients. The combination of chemical fertilizers with non-mineral nutrients as plant residues, farm manure, urban wastes, other organic matter sources and biological nitrogen fixation is recognized today as a more sustainable solution.

Contribution:
To improve water retention capability of vegetative layer superabsorbent is used. It can retain 300 1000 times more water, then its dry mass. Superabsorbent is used to secure water supply for roots systems. A new kind of geocomposite with superabsorbent was developed. It is a flat tube made with geotextile filled with superabsorbents grains. It allows to control depth and place of application. Superabsorbent cannot freely penetrate into soil then does not change its strength properties.

Contribution:
Studies on superabsorbent (SAP) influence on biotechnical protection systems. SAP can retain up to 1000 times more water, then its own mass (depending on the SAP quality). Additional water retained from precipitation can be later used by plants in area with water deficit.Beacause of danger of local landslides of slopes, where superabsorbent was applied, investigation on its influence on soil properties are planed.A new form of application - geocomposite with SAP - will be studied, too.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Ing. Viliam Pichler Dept. of Natural Environment Faculty of Forestry Sciences Technical University Zvolen T. G. Masaryka 24 SK-960 53 Zvolen Slovakia
pichler@vsld.tuzvo.sk He graduated from the Faculty of Forestry, Technical University in Zvolen, in 1991. He completed his graduate studies at the Department of Natural Environment, Technical University Zvolen, Slovakia and at the Laboratory of Prof. Dr. Hannes Fluehler, Head of Soil Physiscs Department of the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, Switzerland and earned his PhD in Forest Ecology in 1996. In 1995, he was awarded European Diploma in Environmental Sciences by European Institute for Postgraduate Studies at the University of Dresden, Germany. From 1996 till 1997 he was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Riverside, Department of Soil and Environmental Sciences, lab of Prof. W. A. Jury, where he contributed to the development of new methods for the measurement of soil transport properties. His expertise covers a broad range of measures aimed at offsetting the effect of global changes impact, including climate, economic, social and land use, such as ecosystem fragmentation, on the hydric functions of ecosystems, mostly forest ecosystems. The proposed and tested approaches unfold from detailed analyses of the current state and trends in ecosystems dynamics, water and solute transport processes in soils, evapotranspiration and their spatial variability. Furthermore, he is concerned with the reevaluation of critical loads of forests ecosystems that he has proposed in the view of processes such as preferential flow in soils, which may lead to a substantial reduction of filtering, buffering and transformation capacity of ecosystems. To safeguard the resistance and resilience of ecosystems and the self-purification and water purification capacity of ecosystems, however, it is necessary to ensure the slope stability in mountain areas through a fitting forest management, leaning on the dynamics of natural forests and mimicking primeval forests patterns.
