Environmental Monitoring and Assessment
Informed-decision-making requires integrated, relevant, timely and easy accessible information and its appropriate assessment. To achieve this, adequate monitoring programmes, data and information management systems, assessment and reporting routines and methods have to be in place. The UNECE Environmental Monitoring and Assessment Programme assists member States in working with environmental data and information to ensure their timely flow and adequate assessment. In this way, the Programme helps enable informed decision-making processes, both nationally and internationally, in the environmental sector.
The mid-term review of the establishment of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) in Europe and Central Asia is now underway. The Working Group will examine the draft review in September 2018.
