Main message:
Question:

What magnitude are the health effects of energy production required to support current levels of bottled water consumption in Europe, and how might this be affected by different consumption scenarios?

Answer:

  • To be assessed...


Scope

Purpose

   * Purpose defines the specific information need of the decision-making and the research question that is asked.

Boundaries

  • Population of EU member states in 2007, and projected populations for 2030 and 2050
  • Current consumption patterns; future possible consumption patterns
  • Current and predicted splits of energy production

Scenarios

There are two kinds of scenario to be investigated in this assessment, pertaining to bottled water consumption patterns and EU climate change mitigation policies.

  • Bottled water consumption
    • Business as usual (2007 levels)
  • Energy production scenarios

Intended users

  • Anyone interested

Participants

   * Participants are those who may participate in the making of the assessment. 
     The minimum group of people for a successful assessment is always described. 
     If some groups must be excluded, this must be explicitly motivated.

Decision variables

   * Decision variables: decisions that are considered.

Indicators

   * Indicators: outcome variables of interest.

Value variables

   * Value variables: value judgements (usually about indicators).

Other variables

   * Other variables: any variables that link to the causal network and are within the boundaries of the assessment.

Analyses

   * Analyses: statistical and other analyses that contain two or more variables, e.g. optimizing.

Indices

   * Indices: lists of particular locations along spatial, temporal, or other dimensions. 

Result

   * Results of indicators and assessment-specific analyses. 

Results

Conclusions

   * Conclusions are based on the results, given the scope.
