Reporting on the state of Europe's environment

The European Environment Agency (EEA) is seeking expert consultants to assist in the analysis of data and the drafting of chapters for its next state of the environment reports.

The EEA recently published "Europe's environment: the Dobris Assessment", which covers for the first time, through a comprehensive assessment, the state of the environment of nearly 50 European countries. This report was requested by the European Environment Ministers' Conference in June 1996. It is aimed at facilitating the development and prioritizing of an environmental programme for Europe, and to help raise awareness about the pan-European dimension of environmental problems.

The agency is now preparing the follow-up to this report (working title: "Dobris + 3"), as requested by the Ministerial Conference in October 1995, which is due to be published by January 1998. "Dobris + 3" should assess the progress and prospects of the main environmental issues since Dobris.

On the basis of an outline and list of contents prepared by the agency, the process of data collection, gathering and aggregation will be organized by the agency and coordinated with national and international partners. Following this, it is foreseen that external experts will help analyse the aggregated data and subsequently draft some of the chapters under the management and direction of the agency. Consequently the work to be contracted under this call does not include new data collection. The work will involve compiling, analysing and writing based on the information and material made available by the agency. Proposals are requested from experts in the field of analysis and integration of environmental information practised in the writing and presentation of such information in various fields of the environment.
