The objective of Task 2 is to support the Commission in the assessment of Operational Programmes in terms of their contribution to water management aiming to support implementation of the Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Floods Directive (FD) in the period 2014-2020. The assessment aims also at checking the planning of interventions that
may prevent reaching the objectives of the WFD, if not implemented in line with its provisions.
This has been carried out through an assessment of the key OPs across the 18 Member States that have allocated significant amounts of Cohesion Policy funding to the relevant TOs.
The assessment covers 76 MS OPs plus 18 Cooperation Programmes and aims to determine how the documents take the objectives and requirements of the water legislation into consideration and to examine how specific investments have been planned. It takes a quantitative approach in terms of spending allocations and a qualitative approach in terms of reviewing the objectives and reasoning behind investment planning.
