Feasibility Study for the Establishment of a UNEP/GRID-Compatible Environmental Information Network in Hungary

31 Dec 1995

In 1994, UNEP initiated a program to support environment assessment, reporting and data management capacities in countries with economies in transition in Central and Eastern Europe. This includes identification of needs and the formulation of project proposals to meet these needs. With partner agencies and other donors, UNEP seeks to leverage finances to correct any imbalances. 

This activity is a part of UNEP's global ENRIN (Environment and Natural Resources Networking) programme, which is a direct follow-up of Agenda 21, chapter 40 on information for decision-making. This chapter underlines that there is a need for easily accessible environmental information at all levels, from that of senior environmental decision-makers to the grass roots. An agreement has been made with the GRID-Arendal center in Norway for implementation of the ENRIN program in Central and Eastern Europe. 

This feasibility report assesses the environmental information systems capacities and needs in Hungary, and proposes actions necessary for strengthening the existing capacities to improve access to environmental information for decision-making and awareness.
