    We consider that the diversity of data sources (EEA/EIONET, OECD, Eurostat, AQUAstat,…), all with different purposes, assumptions and statistical treatment, can cause problems of coherence and comparability. For this reason it was important to ask each member state to validate its baseline data, whether this data is correct vis-à-vis the intended target, before calculating the indicator.

      Thank you for your comment, all data reported to EU or other international organizations are considered as validated ones. We've gone through an extensive assessment of potential different definitions of parameters under these datasets and in very limited cases it required additional data curation. Other than this, these data sources are fit for calculating the WEI+ indicator

    We agree with previous comments, that data used for each country should be consulted. For Slovakia we found out (when comparing the data we have reported to EEA for years 2018 and 2019), that for abstractions there was omitted one part of water used for electricity production (only water for cooling was taken in account).

       We kindly ask you to consult with the EEA feedback to Slovakia on the same comment.
