News 2014/05/02 2nd Regional workshop on water information systems and reporting of water data, 13 May

The European Environment Agency  (EEA) jointly with United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Joint Task Force (UNECE JTF) on Environmental Indicators will organise regional workshop for the countries of South-Eastern and Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia on water information systems and reporting of water data, taking place in Geneva, 13 May 2014.

In December 2013, the EEA facilitated sharing of experiences between the European environment information and observation network (Eionet) and partner countries in Eastern Europe and the Caucasus through a regional training conducted under the ENPI-SEIS project on how water quality data is shared and used to assess the state and pressures on water resources at the European scale (i.e. to explore and review the Water Information for Europe (WISE) “State of the Environment” (SoE) reporting procedure and tools). A conclusion of this activity was the agreement to share such experiences with the broader audience of UNECE Environmental Monitoring Programme's target countries.

The main objective of the regional workshop is to share good practice and experience in establishing water information systems in the target countries in support of the national policy development in the fields of water protection and of the population access to water and sanitation and the international – pan European – reporting in these fields.
