What is SEIS?

SEIS is a collaborative approach aiming to organise environmental information required for designing and implementing environmental policy. The development of SEIS is underpinned by three main pillars:

  • Cooperation: building partnerships between the providers and users of data and information;

  • Common content: generating policy-relevant and comparable information;

  •  Infrastructure: using shared and modern web-based information and communication technologies.  

The overall objective of SEIS is to improve the knowledge base for environmental policy and reduce administrative burden.
