New website connects European EPAs

Topics: ,
A new website connecting environmental protection agencies (EPA) across Europe has been launched with the support of the European Environment Agency (EEA) today.

We hope the new EPA Network website will encourage discussion and highlight best practices.

EEA Executive Director Prof. Jacqueline McGlade

The website is primarily a tool to increase cooperation between members of the 'EPA Network' — an independent coalition between heads of the various national environmental and protection agencies. The website, which is hosted by the EEA, will also allow the public to see what role EPAs play in countries other than their own.

EPAs exist in most European countries. They provide a critical service, both nationally and on a European level, by continuously monitoring the state of the environment on the ground. EPA staff also provide expert advice to policy-makers in each country. In some cases the EPA is also responsible for licensing, surveillance and general enforcement of environmental policy.

The EPA Network provides a forum where members can discuss policy and implementation. The network also aims to foster cooperation between countries and regions.

'The EPA Network is an important forum. Environment policy designed in Brussels is often implemented very differently on the ground in individual Member States. The impact of policy is also often mixed. We hope the new website will encourage discussion and highlight best practices,' Professor Jacqueline McGlade, EEA Executive Director.
