26 March 2018 | Ukraine: In-depth water data management training by ENI SEIS II East

Training

Countries: Ukraine

Starting today, Ukraine and the European Environment Agency water experts will hold a 5-day training session, building capacity for assessing state of water resources as well as developing water information system that can support policymaking and the implementation of integrated water resources management in Ukraine. The training is delivered under an EU-funded project focused on sharing environmental information, including that on water - a resource that is vital for all life on our planet, ecosystems, society and the economy. 

Integrated water management requires cooperation and sharing information among many stakeholders. Moreover, it is important to obtain relevant, reliable, robust and harmonised data that can be used to assess the state of, and pressure on, the water resource. 

With solid information, it is possible to make sound and effective policies that support marine and freshwater ecosystems - serving many important functions from filtering, diluting and storing water to preventing floods, and from maintaining the climate balance to safeguarding biological diversity.
