Streamlining the collection, exchange and use of the data required for the design and implementation of environmental policy in Azerbaijan will be the focus of a workshop in Baku on 26-27 May, due to be held under the EU-funded ENPI Shared Environment Information System project (ENPI-SEIS).
The workshop will be organized by the European Environment Agency in cooperation with the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources and the State Statistical Committee of the Republic of Azerbaijan, a press release said. The objective of the workshop is to evaluate the progress of SEIS and sharing of environmental data in the three priority areas: air, water and waste.
The ENPI-SEIS project aims to promote the protection of the environment in the countries of the Neighbourhood (east and south), by extending the principles of the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) to the region, and developing the capacities of the relevant authorities responsible for environmental data management and reporting. The SEIS is an EU initiative to modernise and simplify the collection, exchange and use of the data and information required for designing and implementing environmental policy.
