Our information vision

This content has been archived on 06 Dec 2013, reason: Content is outdated

Over the past decades, environmental information has evolved from substance-by-substance monitoring to much more integrated information-gathering systems. Nevertheless, a lot more can be achieved with environmental information and communication technologies. Future studies and better information are needed to help make our policies robust over the long term.

A long-term view requires a broad mind

Forward-looking studies have been developed for agriculture, transport and energy, climate change and air pollution. But we need more integrated, long-term assessments to effectively support strategic decision-making. We also need to broaden our impact assessments procedures.

The PRELUDE project (Prospective Environmental analysis of Land Use Development in Europe) demonstrates how we can broaden our thinking. It explores what our society and environment might look like in 2035.

Better and more detailed environmental information

Environmental information is currently collected by a variety of organisations using techniques from satellite observation to mobile monitoring stations on our roads, to volunteers knee-deep in mud collecting water samples for laboratory analysis.

The European Environment Agency and its network intend to employ the Internet in innovative ways to gather all information and make it easily accessible to decision-makers and individual citizens alike. Our Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) will work in all settings (local, national, regional, European and international). Ozone web and the Water Information System for Europe are the first steps to move this vision from concept to reality.
