The
workshop Electronic environmental information for decision-makers and public
in the CIS countries
, organized by the Environment Agency of England and
Wales and the UNEP (Division of Early Warning and Assessment for Europe and
GRID-Arendal) took place in St. Petersburg, Russia from May 23 to
27. 


It was composed of two parts. Workshop A (from May 23 till 25) was
devoted to hands-on work on the web production of popular State of the
Environment reports for a country or region with the assistance from
UNEP/GRID-Arendal.


Workshop B (from May 25 till 26) was focused on the European
practices in dissemination and use of electronic environmental information.
Special attention was paid to the UNEP's practices, PRTRs and electronic
information in the Aarhus process. Representatives from the Environmental
Agency of England and Wales shared their experience in delivering environmental
information directly to citizens with the help of GIS tools. The possibility of
starting similar work in selected CIS countries in the framework presented at
the Second meeting of the Aarhus Convention Task Force on Electronic Information
Tools was discussed, and three regions [Pskov (Russia), Kiev (Ukraine) and Minsk
(Belarus)] were selected for the pilot project.
