The geographical area covered by the project is laid out in regulation EC/1638/2006 establishing a European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI).
The following countries has been grouped into the region South: Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia.
Within the H2020 initiative, the EEA has been called upon to support the development of a sustainable Mediterranean Environment Reporting Mechanism (MERM-MED), in line with the concept and principles of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS), focussing on three priority areas: municipal waste, wastewater treatment and industrial emissions. EEA has been requested to design, in cooperation with relevant partners and based on existing ongoing initiatives, a coherent data flow, indicator and assessment process as well as a framework for regular indicatorbased analyses, including a “scorecard”, to compare and measure progress across the region.
To make coherent assessments of pollution levels in the region and to track trends, it is necessary to streamline the existing data flows and network infrastructures. In this respect, a close cooperation with regional bodies and particularly with UNEP/MAP is crucial, also considering its experience in working with indicators developed within the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD). Data, information and indicators will be the basis for an assessment of the state of the environment across the region and of progress made by the partner countries within the H2020 framework. They will also serve to support the implementation of various national, regional and international commitments and targets, in particular the Barcelona Convention. Based on a regional cooperation, a first biennial synthesis progress report on the Horizon 2020 priorities is already planned. A broader assessment process could be developed and linked to the EEA’s five-year regular assessment process (The European Environment: State and Outlook).
