1 Towards a regular assessment & reporting process based on SEIS UNECE/WGEMA meeting 1-2 November 2012

2 Ministerial Declaration 14. ….’To keep the pan-European environment under review, we decide to establish a regular process of environmental assessment and to develop the SEIS across the region. These will serve multiple policy processes, including MEAs, and include capacity-building of countries in Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, Central Asia and South-Eastern Europe to monitor and assess their environment. We invite EEA and its partners to develop an outline for how these actions could be performed and to present it to the ECE Committee on Environmental Policy.’ … e/ece.astana.conf.2011.2.add.1.e.pdf e/ece.astana.conf.2011.2.add.1.e.pdf

3 The mandate Keep the pan-European environment under review Establish a regular process of environment assessment Develop a Shared Environmental Information System So that SEIS gradually develops to underpin future environment assessment and review activities

4 TWO time perspectives Short-term: 2012-2013 Medium/Long-term: 2014-2020 and: Regular monitoring & assessment of the implementation process

5 SEIS and related EU policy instruments a) SEIS communication 1/2008 c) SEIS staff working paper 6/2012 (EU internal) b) Communication on better implementation 3/2012

8 Steps in the process so far Sept. 2011 –Astana Declaration Oct. 2011 – WGEMA – first ideas on implementing the Astana mandate March 2012 – EEA MB – Discussing draft outline prepared for CEP April 2012 – EU WPIEI – Discussing Astana follow up actions and EU position to CEP meeting April-Sept. 2012 - Comments and proposals to the draft outline July- onwards – Dialogue with key partners (MEAs, EU, OECD, UNEP, RECs) October 2012 - Revised draft outline available for UNECE/CEP and WGEMA

9 Other SEIS related activities Capacity building ENP/SEIS - Workshops on SEIS/infrastructure and indicators for both East and South (*) Caspian sea- Env information system (together with UNEP/Grid) Sept.2012 Central Asia - Aware project including SEIS national events New SEIS projects Central Asia – tendering closed on 1 Oct. for FLERMONECA project (including SEIS extension); expected start 2013 Caspian – new SEIS related project for consideration for EU funding

10 Relevant SEIS events SEIS dedicated side event in Rio –June 2012 (attended by UNECE, UNEP, CAREC and EEA members) Central Asia – EU panel on environment and climate change (Sept. 2012) – SEIS development endorsed as priority for cooperation in new fin. perspective 2014-2020; ENP/Steering Committee (21-22 Nov. Copenhagen) Central Asia- EU –high level meeting on env. issues (to endorse the proposed priorities 10-11 Dec. Bishkek, tbc.) The first Eye on Earth user conference (4-6 March 2013, Dublin)

11 SEIS Action Plan Develop the next SOER cycle in a consistent way across region, using the indicators developed with associated assessments, following DPSIR framework Underpin the indicators used in the next SOER by regular data flows Streamline the activity of existing networks towards creating building blocks in the MDIAR(K) process for regular reporting

12 Points for discussion Role of WGEMA and JTF in the process Coordination of networks at national level Planned deliverables and timetable Contributions to mid term review (2013)

17 AQ e-Reporting ? A new system for reporting air quality information A single system for all regulatory & informative reporting Modernised and standards based, to make full use of computers and the internet to deliver Automation Reliability / consistency Medium to long-term savings Enhanced information sharing All existing systems replaced as of 1 January 2014

38 SEIS ENPI - Cookbook A set of case studies collected from EEA Member and Cooperating countries and ENPI partner countries. A SEIS Checklist comprising a set of questions designed to assess the status of SEIS development and identify possible gaps and areas for further enhancement. Steps to be taken into account when planning SEIS implementation. Useful links.

39 A Case study: Gives light on how to translate SEIS principles into practice Addresses real examples of implementation (currently 25 case studies) Identifies a series of services/tools that can be (re)used to meet the SEIS principles in a range of contexts Provides a SEIS barometer to benchmark your system / process List of case studies

40 SEIS implementation plan – DG ENV Inter-service consultation of a EC staff working paper SEIS implementation plan Publication end 2012 (tbc.) Introducing SIIFs (Structured implementation and information frameworks) EEA is supporting pilot SIIFs on: Air quality Urban waste water treatment
