The identified measures build on, and ensure continuity of, the Shared Environmental Information System Phase II and the EU Water Initiative Plus for Eastern Partnership programmes. These two programmes were instrumental for modernising environmental monitoring and data analysis systems, promote evidence-based policy making, and increase the partner countries’ alignment with EU and international law, in particular the Water Framework Directive.
Purpose and structure
- To reduce the adverse impact of human activities on water and aquatic ecosystems, and ensure water resources are available in sufficient quality and quantity for all.
- To extend and improve the use of sound environmental statistics, and ensure greater availability of policy-relevant data for decision-makers and citizens.
Stakeholders in the Eastern Partner Countries
EU4Environment – Water Resources and Environmental Data works at the regional, national and local (basin) levels. It works with government authorities in the Eastern Partner Countries, water users, data producers, civil society, academia and the private sector.
Two EU Member States (Austria and France), and two international organisations (OECD and UNECE), work hand in hand with the Eastern Partner countries to support their ambitious reform journey.
