Short description of the contract or purchase(s):  
This contract's aim is to support EEA in the areas of data collection, data analysis, assessment and reporting.
Data collection is to a large extent handled via agreements with such organisations as Eurostat, OECD, UNECE, etc., but in many cases these data sets needs to be complemented with detailed national studies and case stories in order to provide a more comprehensive picture of the state of the environment, development directions and needs for policy. The consultant will therefore be asked to compile and extract relevant data from the central sources and from national studies into Excel sheets in preparation for analysis.
Data analysis and assessment entails converting data into relevant information on the drivers for development, pressures on the environment, state of the environment, impacts from transport and the response of society. The process requires a great deal of dialogue with the EEA project managers.
Reporting requires turning information into concise and relevant products (reports, fact sheets, presentations, briefings, etc.) with a strong focus on the recipients. EEA places a high emphasis on ensuring that products are adapted to the needs of users.
