The final report of the InSEIS project is now available HERE


The InSEIS project, implemented by the European Environment Agency in the period 1st June 2014 to 31st October 2015 has come to an end. The aim of this project was to to contribute to bringing the ENP partner countries closer to the EEA and Eionet work practices, tools and activities, building on the previous cooperation and ENPI-SEIS project work.

The InSEIS team would like to thank all colleagues and partners for the efforts invested in this common endeavour of bringing and gradually introducing the Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS) to the European Neighbourhood.

Special acknowledgement goes to the National Focal Points in the partner countries for their great work and determination!

The project web site will remain open for consultation and access to the main achievements and outcomes.

We are looking forward to continuing our fruitful cooperation with the colleagues in the European Neighbourhood partner countries in the years to come.



The InSEIS project was initiated as response to the five ENP (European Neighbourhood Policy) countries: Jordan, Israel, Morocco, Palestine and Republic of Moldova interest in increased collaboration with the European Environment Agency (EEA) and further implementation of Shared Environmental Information System (SEIS).

The project is implemented by the EEA in cooperation with the European Environment and Information Network (Eionet) during a 14 months period - from 1st June 2014 to 31st July 2015. The financing is provided through a grant contract managed by the European Commission, Directorate-General EuropeAid.

The overall objective of the enhanced cooperation is to contribute to bringing the ENP partner countries closer to the EEA and Eionet work practices, tools and activities. The specific objectives are to:

  • increase capacity of national experts in specific thematic areas and support establishing closer cooperation between key players dealing with environmental information at national level.
  • further  theapproximation to the EU legislation and use EU best practices for environmental protection to support countries’ implementation of environmental regulation and integrated planning.
  • improve  environmental data management, sharing and dissemination of information at national level as part of an advanced National Environmental Information System. 
  • integrate of thematic issues while producing environmental assessments at national, regional and international level as well as indicator- based State-of-Environment (SoE) reporting underpinned by regular data flows.

The enhanced cooperation will primarily focus on provision of Technical Assistance, a dedicated expert support to the countries, using the EEA/Eionet expertise in ten identified specific activities with the aim to share experiences and build new capacities. Specific thematic workshops will be organised to support the development of technical capacities around particular topics of interest and discussing possibilities for implementation of activities at national and/or regional level. The experts from five countries will participate at training missions and dedicated seminar to boost the knowledge and exchange expertise in topics of national interest. During the project duration, experts from the beneficiary countries could be invited to attend selected Eionet meetings and seminars, which are relevant for the identified areas of the enhanced cooperation.
