Toelichting (Engels) The aim of the BSIK project “Water Economic Modelling for Policy Analysis” is to develop an integrated and operational water and economy model framework for the Netherlands that will enable to determine the economic effects of measures to improve the water quality and as a result the ecological quality of rivers, regional and local waters. The model must be shaped in such a way that it is suitable for economic analysis of implementing the EU Water Framework Directive (WFD) in the Netherlands. The underlying document addresses the availability and usefulness of water system models to become a part of the model framework to be developed. Both applicability at the national as well as the regional scale will be considered. In the short-term, the project focuses primarily on the WFD and what implementation means for the Dutch economy. The aim is to use this work in the long-term to taking into account multiple relationships between economy and the water system. It is intended to build the model framework with models that are available and not with models still to be developed. That means that an inventory is needed of available models and that a screening and selection is needed of all the models to determine which of them may be considered fit for this use and become part of the framework. For reasons of transparency and clarity, the screening of economic and water system models is done in the same way using a screening and evaluation system. This system is hierarchical and consists of five levels of evaluation and screening criteria. All models that were screened are mentioned in this document and the models that passed the screening procedure are discussed in more detail in separate paragraphs. Data on emissions are present in the Emission Registration Collective database. It is concluded that the Waste Load Model, the Substance Flow Model, SOBEK WQ, Duflow, and the Water Recreation Model all are useful models on a national scale and for the short term. However, large efforts are needed in generating the input files for these models to assess the effects of scenarios and measures.
