The Working Group works in close coordination and cooperation with intergovernmental organizations and institutions and non-governmental organizations that are active in the UNECE region on environmental monitoring and information. It prepared an inventory of twenty-six international environmental databases that are based on data collection from a substantive number of UNECE Governments. The review identified gaps in country coverage, weaknesses in data reporting and some problems in data accessibility. These findings might help individual countries and relevant intergovernmental bodies responsible for data collection to improve the current situation.
