Knowledge Bases

The availability of reliable, accessible and comprehensible data sets is not only instrumental to UNEP's assessment and early warning activities, but is essential for the improved management of the environment and the maintenance of ecosystem health.

Countries of the West Asia region are at different stages in terms of existing initiatives, programs, projects, systems and networks regarding environmental data. In general, environmental data and information in the region does not meet current and future needs.


Working with collaborating centres in the region, UNEP is working to facilitate the harmonisation of data collection and improve access to environmental information throughout the region. It supports the development of environmental information systems at the national and sub-regional levels.
