National Focal Points


The implementation method of the project is to use the 'European Environment Information and Observation Network' (Eionet) as the model for SEIS implementation through the project. Eionet is structured around national obligations towards the EU and the international community streamlined through a rational reporting process with sustainable and stable reporting network (via National Focal Points) who are mandated to report on behalf of their country, as well as strongly supported by the peer network, where countries share experience and learn from each other.

A similar model is proposed for the ENI East partner countries in line with the practice under the previous SEIS cooperation through the ENPI-SEIS project (2010-2015). Two National Focal Points are nominated by the partner country, coming from the Ministries of Environment and the National Statistical authorities.

Establishing links to relevant experts in other line ministries and national organisations for particular project thematic areas contributes towards setting up coordination networks at national level. In the project these networks constitute SEIS National Implementation Team (NIT). The NIT enables mobilisation of resources, ensures broader buy-in to the process, supports the coordination of national activities, and improves information sharing between stakeholders.

Support to the NIT is delivered through dedicated SEIS National Assistants to ensure engagement of national stakeholders.
