Tools and Guidelines

In many countries of Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA), the use of up-to-date information technologies by environmental monitoring authorities needs to be expanded. These technologies may substantially improve environmental data handling, exchange and supply to public authorities and the public.

The Working Group on Environmental Monitoring and Assessment has established a task force, with the Russian Federation as lead country, to review the collection of meta information on available sources of environmental information and activities in EECCA countries and to develop practical tools and instruments, using modern information technologies, to improve the use and exchange of information in these countries, and to harmonize their approaches with those applied within EEA networks.

A review was prepared of the current situation in EECCA regarding electronic environmental networking, data management and reporting. An electronic catalogue was developed containing more than 1,500 descriptions of environmental data sources in EECCA, including governmental agencies, reports and databases, and providing electronic links to many of them. An electronic database was also prepared containing the details of some 150 officials responsible for the main environmental data flows and information systems. Another database, EcoReporting is a database with the access to EECCA national environmental reports and their submissions to international bodies. ENG FRE RUS
