TERM2001 - Indicators tracking transport and environment integration in the European Union Progress towards a more sustainable transport system has become imperative in the European Union (EU), as in many other parts of the world. Transport therefore figures prominently in the EU's Sixth environment Action programme (6EAP) and Sustainable Development Strategy. At its June 2001 summit in Gothenburg, the European Council singled out the transport sector as one of the four priority areas where sustainability policy development has to be put on a faster track. Achieving progress requires better integration of environmental considerations into all areas of transport policy-making. Equally important is to get a clear and quantitative picture of the sector and its development. Available in 13 European languages at EEA reports main page.
Environmental signals 2001 Environmental signals 2001 is the second issue in the series of regular indicator-based reports roduced by the European Environment Agency for high-level policy-makers in EEA member countries and the European Union. The main aim is to present key environmental indicators in order to report, on a regular and consistent basis, on progress in a number of policy areas at the European level. The report also presents a benchmark of countries' performance ('name and shame, name and fame'). Available in 14 European languages at EEA reports main page.
Environmental signals 2000 This first edition of Environmental signals marks the beginning of a new period in reporting on the environment for policy-makers and the public by the European Environment Agency. Previous reports such as Europe's environment: the second assessment and Environment in the European Union at the turn of the century are comprehensive documents containing detailed information to support the development of strategic, long-term environmental policies and to provide general public information. Available in 7 European languages at EEA reports main page.
Environment in the European Union at the turn of the century Report on the state of the european environment. Available in 13 European languages at EEA reports main page.
Europe's Environment - The Second Assesment A report on the changes in the pan-European environment as a follow-up to 'Europe's Environment: The Dobris Assessment' (1995) requested by the environment Ministers for the whole of Europe to prepare for the fourth ministerial conference in Aarhus, Denmark, June 1998. Available in 13 European languages at EEA reports main page.
Nutrients in European ecosystems This report presents a pan-European overview of the geographical distribution, and severity of adverse effects, of excessive anthropogenic inputs of nutrients in European ecosystems.
Nature Conservation - Annual topic update 1999 Over the year, ETC on Nature Conservation has continued to develop the European nature information system UNIS. The topic centre has also provided support to the NATURA 2000 network and to the EEA's reporting activities.
Nature Conservation - Annual topic update 1998 Summary of 1998: progress, main events and results of European Topic Centre on Nature Conservation.
Nature Conservation - Annual topic update 1997 Summary of 1997 progress, main events and results of European Topic Centre on Nature Conservation. This document reports on the development of the European Nature Information System (EUNIS) on species, habitats and sites; outlines the support provided to the European Commission and Member States on NATURA 2000 and lists the contributions the ETC made to the EEA on Europe's Nature, including its contribution to 'Europe's Environment: The Second Assessment' and to 'Excessive Anthropogenic Nutrients in European Ecosystems.'
Nature Conservation - Annual summary report 1996 The report for 1996 summarises the main results and points to future work needed. In 1996 the ETC/NC became increasingly involved in the Agency's reporting tasks and in collaboration with other ETCs, but the main tasks were still continuations of work started in 1995.
Annual Summary Report 1995 - Nature Conservation - with a look to the future This is the first annual summary report on work performed by the ETC/NC. The report summarises the main findings in 1995 and points to future work needed. The ETC/NC performed its tasks under 3 project headings : MN1 Nature Protection - general approach to assessment MN2 State and trends of biodiversity in Europe MN3 Support to the NATURA 2000 Network
The UN Convention on Biological Diversity - Follow-up in EEA Member Countries 1996 In 1992 the UN global Convention on Biological Diversity was signed in Rio de Janeiro. All parties shall follow-up the intentions of the Convention in their own activities in strategies, plans and policies. This report contains an analysis of the follow-up activities performed during 1996 by the 18 EEA Member Countries. It concludes that the follow-up process and activities were not easy for any country and that all countries are trying to develop the follow-up work in different ways.
Databases on Species, Habitats and Sites - Survey and Analysis 1995-96 The report presents the findings and the analysis of the overview and lists the title of all datasets identified by country. Not surprisingly the largest amount of data concerns mammals or birds, while other animal groups and plants or habitattypes are much less well documented. National datasets on populations and distribution of Annex II species of the Habitats Directive are shown to be very limited at present.
CORINE Biotopes Sites - Database Status and Perspectives 1995 This report gives an overview of the status of the database hosted by ITE in 1995, the site selection criteria used by Member States in site descriptions and the contents in terms of information on sites, habitat types and species. It contains a proposal for a re-orientation of the database as a background for the future EUNIS, which is to be developed by ETC/NC for use both for the NATURA 2000 process and for the Agency pan-European reporting on the state of the environment.
