5-6 March 2019 | Regional Seminar for integrating environmental information in national E-Governance/Open Data frameworks and platforms

Countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine

The event brings together high-level representatives from the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries from Ministries of Environment, Statistical Offices as well as officials from other relevant institutions dealing with environment and related information (e.g. authority responsible for Land management and cadaster, Ministry of Health, Transport and Energy etc.)

The focus is to discuss and identify feasible and practical means for integrating environmental information in national E-Governance/Open Data frameworks and platforms to raise the profile of environmental information through its accessibility, sharing, harvesting additional environmental, and social and economic benefits.

This project component will be closely linked and build upon other thematic project components and will connect with the activities overseen by the Aarhus Convention, as well as with current initiatives taking place in the European Union on open data, streamline reporting and improving the access to environment information. National workshops in the six EaP countries are foreseen to be held in the following months.
