"EEA is a specialised agency of the European Union (EU) set up1 to provide the European Commission, Parliament, member states and citizens with sound and independent environmental information. The purpose of its services is to support sustainable development by bringing information needed to develop and evaluate environmental policy and to support decision making. The EEA was created as a networking organisation, the European Information and Observation Network being established also through the EEA founding Regulation2. This network covers relevant national environmental bodies assigned to work with the EEA in gathering, analysing and assessing environmental information to support policy processes. Initially in 1994, Eionet consisted of the 15 EU Member States plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. Today, EEA’s membership covers 32 European countries3 including all the five European members of the Arctic Council (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden)." /.../
