EEA opens its doors to UN's Environment Watch proposal

Today, the EEA will play host to the first global expert meeting for the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) proposed global information network system - Environment Watch.

Today, the EEA will play host to the first global expert meeting for the United Nations Environment Programme's (UNEP) proposed global information network system - Environment Watch.

'Environment Watch' aims to help monitor the world's environment situation by collecting environment data from observation systems and scientific programmes at all levels - local, regional and national - throughout the world.

UNEP's governing council has expressed support for further refinement of the Environment Watch proposal, and suggested piloting activities and twinning arrangements between focal points in different regional networks.

Top - level environmental information managers and representatives from the EEA's National Focal Points will be attending the 2-day event, which runs from 22 - 23 May. The meeting will focus on drafting the guidelines for piloting national and regional information networks as suggested in the Environment Watch proposal, and issues for discussion include the network structure and architecture, and network functioning.
