About the programme
Policy development and planning for sustainable development and coherent environmental management demands information, national data and knowledge of the state of the environment. As assessments and analyses become multi-sectoral, the degree of complexity generates the need for integrated information. These products in turn require organizational infrastructures for the acquisition, integration, analysis and dissemination of data and information.

A low capability to mobilize information effectively in developing countries and countries in transition reduces the effectiveness of environmental assessment for sustainable development and undermines a society's capacity to devise and implement solutions to environmental issues. Moreover, the focus of most knowledge and information systems lies still often on archiving rather than using or interpreting data, the latter being more effective in delivering information in support of specific end goals.
