3 Main aim to obtain, assess and standardize detailed information on the Segura River basin (South East of Spain), including the external transfers in order to analyze and demonstrate the potential of management, technological and economic measures to decrease water scarcity in this drought prone region. Tool to be employed: SEEA W (System of Economic and Environmental Accounts for Water), complementing the EU water resource balances with local data, and integrating the water accounts with the RBMP, demonstrating their use for the local planning. Hydraulic zones
4 Study area: Segura River Basin General Characteristics Spain Europe SURFACE (Km 2 ) POPULATION THAT DEMANDS RESOURCES FROM SEGURA RIVER BASIN (inhabitants). Year SUMMER POPULATION (inhabitants). Year 2009 > TOTAL LENGHT OF CHANNEL NETWORK (Km) IRRIGATION SURFACE (ha) SOURCES OF WATER RESOURCES (Hm 3 ) Surface water ; Groundwater Reutilization ; Desalinisation; Tajo-Segura Water Transfer Source: CHS
5 Segura River Basin (SRB): main characteristics The South East of Spain receives less Rainfall than the rest of Iberian Peninsula. SRB: Mean annual Rainfall = 300 mm. SRB: Mean annual Potential Evapotranspiration ETp = 1500 mm. Most of the area is classified as semi arid, while the coastal areas are considered arid. Mean annual rainfall (Spain02) Available water resources per inhabitant in the SRB: only 442 m³/inhabitant/year The SRB presents the least renewable water resources of all the Spanish river basins. Mean annual ETp * Surface (km 2 ) Ratio per inhabitant SRB (3.7%) 442 m³/inhab/year Spain m³/inhab/year Source: CHS, 2007 *ETp from Hargreaves modified method considering Spain02 dataset.
6 Segura River Basin (SRB): main characteristics Agriculture area: more than 43 % of the basin surface, of which one third is brought under irrigation ( ha). Irrigated agricultural water demand : 85 % of the total water demand in 2007 in the entire basin. Water scarcity is a major issue in the Segura River Basin. Fuensanta reservoir Desalinization plants Volume Segura river donwstream Talave reservoir (Lietor. Albacete)
7 Several measures were adopted, Water transfers from other basins, two water transfers (from Tagus river, and from Negratín river). Desalinization plants (14 desalinization plants with 146 hm 3 capacity for agricultural use and 188 hm 3 for urban/industrial use). Reuse of treated waters for agriculture (155 wastewater treatment plants ; 142 hm 3 for 2010). Improvements in flow regulation (33 dams with more than 10m height). Segura River Basin (SRB): Measures Simplified water balance for SRB (source: CHS) 11 water purification plants (total production 190 hm 3 for 2010). Modernization of irrigation systems to improve its efficiency and to reduce its water consumption. Six wetlands according to RAMSAR convention. Transference of irrigation rights between users. Main problem: A high number of aquifers are classified as under high pressure and overexploited. Mar Menor
8 ASSET s Work Plan The implementation of the work plan is structured in four main WPs blocks: Development of water resources balances: Task A (A1 and A2), and Task B (B1) Testing solutions for gathering and integrating data (Tasks B2 and B3), and testing the integration of water resources balance in the RBMP (Task E). Identification of management, technological and economic measures: Task D. Proposal and recommendations of targets: Task D Task E.
9 Work Plan Task A. Develop Water Accounts for the Segura River Basin Responsible: UPCT. Participants: CHS and FW. Aim: to collect all necessary data available (Task A1), and implement it into SEEA W (Task A2). A1 Data collection A2 Data Implementation into ECRINS and SEEA W.
10 Work Plan Task B. Innovative procedures for Data Collection and Integration Responsible: FW. Participants: UPCT. Aim: to apply already validated procedures for data integration, and besides the following innovative procedures will be applied and tested to support the reconstruction of the water accounts: B1 Actual evapotranspiration for water balance closure. B2 Development and testing of GIS based solution for data integration B3 Merging local and ENSEMBLES climate data.
11 Work Plan Task D. Identification of Measures for Optimizing Water Allocations Responsible: CHS. Participants: FW and UPCT. Aim: to identify management, technological, administrative and economic measures and assess their potential impact and effectiveness against specific criteria (e.g. water use reduction per economic activity, cost, environmental and socio economic benefits) for the Segura River Basin.
12 Work Plan Task E. Harmonizing RBMP and Water Accounts: Targeting and Uncertainty Assessment under Future Changes Responsible: FW. Participants: CHS and UPCT. Aim: deriving indicative target levels for water saving and for reducing the vulnerability of water resources in the Segura River Basin. These targets will focus on water efficiency, water reuse, land use and climate change adaptation which will allow the preservation and/or restoration of the natural water balance.
13 Work Plan Task C. Communication & Dissemination Responsible: SAMUI. Participants: all. Aim: to maximise the value of the research. Fundamental to this programme is identification of the key target audiences. Main C&D related actions are planned: Project website available at least for 5 years after the project. News for Networks and social media ( Twitter account )and Policy supporting and River Basin Manager Specific Material (Layman s report, Policy brief and executive summary). Summer School. Final and Dissemination Meetings.
