Starting today, Belarus, the European Environment Agency and Slovak Environment Agency will hold a 3-day training session, focusing on the development of the State of environment reports.
State of environment reports aim to provide a comprehensive assessment of the environment’s state, trends and prospects in a given area to inform making and implementation of environmental policies. Such assessments present information on the environmental pressures, driving forces and societal responses. Environmental assessments support sustainable development by providing timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policymakers and the public.
Meeting agenda in Russian and English are available here:
The European Neighbourhood Instrument of the European Union funds ENI SEIS II East project. The 4-year project implements the principles and practices of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS). The project builds on previous cooperation between the European Environment Agency and the six Eastern Partnership countries (Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine). It aims to deepen the EU’s relations with the six Eastern Partnership countries, and to support the promotion of environmental protection by strengthening environmental governance. The project builds capacity in the fields of biodiversity, water, land, waste, air, communication and environmental assessments.
