Quality of Coastal and Marine Water

This term needs further elaboration, which will follow soon. If you are interested in contributing to this term, please contact liaise@zedat.fu-berlin.de 

Description

Description: Why is this guiding question relevant to IA? How can impacts of a policy option be assessed? For an example, please compare EU Impact Area: Employment and Labor. IA Tools offers a source of information. But, also here the text should be carefully reviewed and if possible shortened. Again, the perspective of the policy officer/user should be taken into account when amending the text.  We encourage you to search for other impact area guidelines.
