Toelichting (Engels) The aim of the BSIK project ‘Water Economic Modelling for Policy Analysis’ (WEMPA) is to develop an integrated and operational water and economy model framework of the Netherlands. This model will enable the analysis of the economic effects of measures to improve the water quality and subsequently 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. This underlying document addresses the availability and usefulness of international hydro-economic models, national economic models and sector economic models to become a part of the WEMPA-model framework. 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 the effect of the implementation on the Dutch economy. The long-term objective is to use WEMPA to simulate the multiple relationships between economy and the water system for policy analysis. The intention is to construct the model framework first and thereafter to analyse which models are most suitable to implement in this framework. This means that an inventory is needed of available models and that screening and selection is needed of all potential suitable models to determine which of them provide essential information to be used in (a portion of) the framework. For reasons of transparency and clarity, the screening of economic and water system models is done in a comparable way using a screening and evaluation system. This system is hierarchical and consists of five levels of evaluation and screening criteria. All screened models are described in this document in separate sections and the models that passed the screening procedure are discussed in more detail. The foreign hydroeconomic models are likely to provide information about the modelling framework that could be used to develop the WEMPA. None of the hydro-economic models taken into account passes to the second level, due to the fact that they are not able to model water quality issues at national level and to produce relevant results at the national level. Therefore, the national economic models were assessed seriously, to determine whether they are suitable to be integrated in WEMPA. The national economic general equilibrium models (see Gerlagh et al., 2002, for the calculations of Sustainable National Income and the DEAN model in Dellink, 2003) are most useful to implement in the WEMPA framework, although they do not fully fit the screening criteria. Sector models have been analysed to determine whether these models are suitable to integrate in the model framework. DRAM and Atlantis are suitable models for agriculture and drinking water respectively. The Water Recreation model does not pass all screening levels, but is the only relevant model for this sector. At a lower aggregation level bio-economic models provide more detailed insight into the effect of possible measures. However, the economic component of these models is rather weak, and they do not go beyond the farm level.
