Environmental Information Systems in the Russian Federation
The report is based on research carried out from September to November 1994, when the first draft was compiled. The text was then further revised and updated in 1995. The scope of the research included interviews with local experts in the fields of generation, use, and/or dissemination of environmental data, as well as the examination of published information sources. Among the publications consulted were scarce sources of meta-information, catalogues of general and specialised information services, current legislation and institutional structure documentation, and environmental reporting products. Publications and documents available at GRID-Arendal and conclusions of the OECD evaluation of Russia's environmental information systems were also used.
