Cookbook for State of the Environment Reporting on the Internet

19 years ago

At the Rio Conference in 1992 one would have needed a truck to carry the state of the environment information presented there back home. Today, information is more compact and easier to disseminate through the use of electronic media, such as the Internet and CD-ROM. In addition, efforts have been undertaken to standard- ise, streamline and popularise this information.


UNEP, in cooperation with other interna- tional organisations - such as the EEA and PHARE - have taken a lead in strengthen- ing the existing national and regional environmental information networks in Central and Eastern Europe and the NIS to make environmental information more widely accessible to policy-makers, plan- ners and the general public. Results of these activities are presented on the en- closed compact disc 'State of the Envi- ronment Reports Sampler', which features a 'Cookbook for State of the Environment Reporting on the Internet' - straight-for- ward guidelines on how to make your own State-of-the-Environment report.


This compact disc documents the progress made in environmental information man- agement over the past six years. It pro- vides a sample of the most current pro- ducts available and highlights clear ex- amples of well structured, cross-sector, and easily accesible environmental informa- tion. The challenge remains to put this information into action.
