Online Guidelines for the Application of Environmental Indicators

The Joint Task Force revised the Guidelines for the Application of Environmental Indicators in Eastern Europe, Caucasus, Central Asia and South-Eastern Europe. With this revision the online version of the Guidelines was created.

In the Online Guidelines each indicator is presented through three files: description of the indicator, table for the production of the indicator, and glossary of terms.

The latest update for each indicator is indicated with a relevant date.
