Upon request of MEPs, members of the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI), the European Parliament’s Directorate-General for Parliamentary Research Services has drawn a paper on the Cost of Non-Europe in Water Legislation. Their assessment builds on expert research commissioned specifically for the purpose and provided by Triple E consulting – Energy, Environment & Economics B.V.
The overall objective of the expert study was to carry out a combination of a backward looking (ex-post) and forward looking (ex-ante) evaluation of European water legislation. The emphasis is on the ex-post aspect, mainly because of the need to check the level of implementation of existing legislation. The ex-ante aspect aims at assessing the potential costs and benefits of further intervention at EU levelusing five case studies, along the lines of the approach adopted for other sectors and reported in the ‘Mapping the Cost of Non-Europe, 2014 -19’ report.
