One of the main operational goals of TwinBasin project is to develop exchanges opportunities between basin organisation managers or executives and scientists. Events will be organised throughout the 4 years of the project, during the INBO meetings or via periodic web seminars (one per month).
The webconference will be organised in a regular basis to disseminate knowledge and know-how on a peer-to-peer basis. The staff members involved in mobility for example have to present a monograph on the central topic of the exchange and to complete it with the live presentation.
A webconference duration is around 1,5 hour with a presentation of a key expert, or staff member of mobility, with Powerpoint visual support, followed by interactive discussion.
To participate it is essential to have a headphone and a microphone.
The conferences could be recorded and the key points will be transcribed in a webconference report and disposable on the section ”Results”.

Speaker: Arnaud COURTECUISSE, Agence de l'Eau Artois - Picardie
The content of the twinning cooperation between Agence de l’Eau Artois-Picardie (France) and two Basin Organisations: Banat River Basin (Romania) and East Aegean River Basin (Bulgaria) is focusing on the WFD’s implementation and its economic aspects.
The WFD gives an important and quiet new role to economic activities:
- Economic analysis is required as a tool helping for the identification of the main economic uses of water, to assess the impact of the forecasted trends for the different water uses (Baseline scenario), to select the most cost-effective measures for achieving the environmental objectives set by the Directive, to identify and discuss of potential disproportionate costs which can lead to target the objectives with extended delay or to set less stringent objectives for specific water bodies
- Economic instruments can be included in the programme of measures, particularly through the cost-recovery analysis which is the support of an incentive pricing policy that should be implemented by 2010 (article 9)
