903- Country networks for better environmental information and governance: Three examples from Europe

Putting in practice the principle of “report information once and have it used it many times” requires common procedures, coordination, resources and information technology tools. The European Environment Agency (EEA) and its European Topic Centre for Biological Diversity will highlight issues related to collecting and using information on
* the protected areas in Europe
* the conservation status of species and habitat types of European interest
A third network example is on ensuring consistency between indicator sets at national and international levels, through the Streamlining European Biodiversity Indicators for 2010 process.

A round table discussion on “Challenges of biodiversity information networks with regard to better environmental governance” will follow with representatives from the European Commission, UNEP/World Conservation Monitoring Center, European Environment Agency and the European Topic Centre for Biological Diversity.
