The EU’s project for environmental data in Eastern Partnership
In February 2016, the European Environmental Agency (EEA) began the second phase of the EU-funded European Neighbourhood Instrument (ENI) Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) II East project – otherwise known as ENI SEIS II East project. This project brings together six Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, and supports environmental protection by strengthening environmental governance. The project focuses on topics such as:
- Data, focusing on air, biodiversity, water, land and waste;
- Indicators and Assessments concerning environmental statistics and information necessary for regular environmental assessments and reporting;
- UN System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA) supporting the development of national information systems;
- Access to Environmental Information that involves designing a realistic, stepwise implementation roadmap that is in line with EU and international developments as well as SEIS principles; and
- Communication and visibility, including news updates from the six Eastern Partnership countries around open data.
