National SoE Reports & Outlooks


 

UNEP provides support to countries in the development of national environment outlooks, providing integrated environmental assessment training and facilitating countries in the development of institutional frameworks for their State of the Environment (SoE) reports.

It is intended that the audience of these reports applies information contained within them for decision making purposes, ranging from voting choices to setting policies. The impetus for SoE reporting is partially due to the adoption of Agenda 21 at the 1992 UNCED conference in Rio. Chapter 40 of Agenda 21 specifically calls for improved environmental information for decision-making.
