Most environmental issues are of a transboundary nature and many have a global scope. They can only be addressed effectively through international cooperation. EEA's priority issues with global relevance are climate change, air pollution, sustainable production and consumption, biodiversity, health and environment and the shared environmental information system.

In addition to its 33 member and six cooperating countries (Western Balkans), the EEA also cooperates and fosters partnerships with its neighbours and other countries and regions in the context of the EU Neighbourhood Policy.

The below list is a selection of EEA's cooperation initiatives and partnerships with regions and international organisations.

Regional cooperation

European Neighbourhood Project

As part of the regional cooperation activities, over the period 2010-2014 the EEA is implementing the ENPI-SEIS project with overall objective of promoting the protection of the environment in the countries of the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instruments (ENPI) area (6 European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP) East countries plus Russian Federation and 9 ENP South countries). One of the specific project goals is to improve environmental monitoring, data and information sharing by gradually extending the SEIS (Shared Environment Information System) principles to the European neighbourhood.
