The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Programme on Environmental Monitoring and Assessment assists UNECE member States in working with environmental data and information to enable their timely flows and adequate assessment. In this way, the Programme helps enable an informed decision-making process, both nationally and internationally, in the environmental sector.
Within the Programme, UNECE in collaboration with its partner the European Environment Agency (EEA) and thanks to donors such as the European Union, Norway, Switzerland and the Russian Federation has been working with 17 countries (Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Serbia, Tajikistan, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan) to produce and share environmental data in areas such as air, climate change, water, biodiversity and waste.
This publication analyses progress made by the target countries in the production and sharing of a core set of environmental indicators. The analysis is based on indicators, underpinning datasets and background information shared by the target countries through national websites.
This publication has been prepared within the ENPI-SEIS project funded by the European Union and implemented by the European Environment Agency. Further information regarding the ENPI-SEIS project can be found at: http://enpi-seis.ew.eea.europa.eu/
