The road from Dobříš to Belgrade

Topics: ,
This September the EEA celebrates the 11th anniversary of the publication of 'The Dobříš Assessment', the first Pan-European report on the state of the environment.

The Dobříš Assessment

The groundbreaking report was requested by the first Pan-European Conference of Environment Ministers, which took place at Dobríš castle, near Prague, in June 1991. The conference agreed that a reliable status report on Europe’s environment would be an invaluable first step in tackling the environmental problems facing the continent.

Work on the report predates the European Environment Agency and was actually started by the task force charged with establishing this Agency.

The completed Dobříš report was launched on September 12th, 1995 in Brussels at an event hosted by HRH Prince Laurent of Belgium. It went on to win a major prize from the European Information Association ‘for excellence in providing EU information’.

Since the Dobříš report, the EEA has co-ordinated and published two more pan-European assessments. The fourth in the series, ‘The Belgrade report’, will be presented by the EEA at the next Pan-European conference of environment ministers in Belgrade in October 2007.

The Belgrade report covers 52 European countries including the Caucasus and Central Asia. It will be the subject of a major review process during October and November next. More information on this review process will be available soon on the EEA website.
