National Focal Points

The overall method of implementation of the proposed activity 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) being mandated to report on behalf of the country, as well as strongly supported by the peer element in the 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), where two National Focal Points have been nominated by each country, coming from the Ministries of Environment and the National Statistical authority.

Establishing links to relevant experts in other line ministries/national organisations for particular thematic area is a step towards setting up coordination structures at national level. In the project set-up this is referred to as the SEIS National Implementation Team (NIT). The NIT will support the coordination of national activities, enable mobilisation of resources, ensure broader buy-in to the process and improve information flow between different partners.

Support through dedicated SEIS National Assistants is envisaged to ensure continuous engagement of national stakeholders.
