  • Establishing some (2 to 4) public hearings to take stock of progress in specific areas and related to Community legislation. Air Quality and Water (Drinking Water. Waste Water Treatment) were mentioned. The EEA should contribute with specific assessment (This should reinforce EEA support to implementation.).
  • Analysing the Environment Quality Health issue, as to the kind of approach and related information to be developed by EEA required (As an example of "prior consultation" process).
  • The possible delivery of specific report on progress on key issues (i.e. GHG emissions) at the occasion of Environment Councils.
  • The reinforcement of a Community Information and Communication Strategy
