3 To provide an overview of the state of environment at European level for a selection of key environmental themes – and to publish accessible and credible environmental information. This should build on and complement the on-going assessment work across the EEA. SOER 2015 Part B – Thematic SOE information Overall Objective

4 To provide a comprehensive thematic overview of the European environment’s status, trends (and prospects) to support European decision-making and implementation of European environmental policies. To cluster and summarise EEA knowledge on key environmental challenges and themes in a concise and accessible format, serving as an entry point to the more detailed data, indicators and assessments in the EEA information and knowledge base. To provide a baseline for policy debates on specific environmental issues, based on the 2020 objectives set out in the general Union Environment Action Programme to 2020 (‘7EAP’). SOER 2015 Part B – Thematic SOE information Three Specific Objectives

5 The primary audience for SOER 2015 Part B are specialists, and informed or interested non-specialists, that want to get a short overview of policy context, successes, and challenges of specific environmental issues. The primary target audience of Part B are therefore EU decision- makers and EU policy-influencers with an interest in thematic environmental issues. SOER 2015 Online will provide a vehicle for attracting secondary audiences with SOER 2015 Part B to EEA’s thematic web-pages, indicators, reports and assessments. SOER 2015 Part B – Thematic SOE information Target audiences

6 The four criteria are: a) Are they relevant to European policy, in particular the priorities set out in the 7th EAP and the Europe 2020 strategy? b) Do they collectively provide a reasonably comprehensive overview of the European environment’s status, trends and prospects? c) Do we have indicators to support an analysis of the issue? d) Do they help succinctly explain key concepts and themes that are used in SOER 2015? SOER 2015 Part B – Thematic SOE information Selection of topics for part B fiches

8 SOER 2015 Part B will build on and complement the on-going reporting and assessment work in the thematic groups across the EEA. Part B summaries will summarise the existing EEA knowledge base (including existing or on-going work). Key sources for SOER 2015 Part B include EEA indicators, related fact sheets, as well as annual reporting and assessment processes.
