In line with the Water Framework Directive (WFD) adopted in December 2000, Article L.212-2 of the Environmental Code provides for the development of water policy at the river basin level over a 6-year planning cycle. The first stage of this cycle consists of an inventory.
The study aims to carry out the economic analysis of the inventory: characterisation of industrial activities and their use of water in the basin. This socio-economic analysis makes it possible to identify the water-using activities likely to have an impact on the environment, to quantify these activities (jobs, turnover, etc.) and thus to put the importance of the water uses into perspective.
SDAGE 2022 - 2027
Socio-economic forecast of water uses
The study aims to update the inventory of Guadeloupe and Saint Martin prior to the SDAGE 2022-2027 on the economic aspect through :
• Socio-economic characterisation of water uses: analysis of the economic weight of different uses.
• Development of a trend scenario for uses by 2027: assessment of trends in economic activities, demographics and public policies, integration of the effects of foreseeable climate change on the basin, assessment of the risks of not achieving good water status.
