Economic Analysis of the Euthrophication Problem at Orlik Reservoir

Evaluation of the cost-effectiveness combination of measures in the river basin scale for the euthrophication reduction in the large dam Orlik.

Within large European project REFRESH, the IEEP and IREAS, Institute for Structural Policy teams were responsible for the economic analysis of the euthrophication problem at Orlik water reservoir situated at Southern Bohemia. The analysis contains the cost-effectiveness evaluation of proposed measures for the phosphorus inflow reduction. Further, benefits derived from the water improvement were assessed based on the benefit transfer method. Proposed measures and results of the evaluation were consulted with key local stakeholders and distributional impacts on different economic sectors (main cost bearers and benefit receivers) were described as well.
