The EEA is an agency of the European Union tasked with providing sound, independent information on the environment. It is a major information source for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also for the general public. The EEA’s mandate is:
To help the Community and member countries make informed decisions about improving the environment, integrating environmental considerations into economic policies and moving towards sustainability;
To coordinate the European environment information and observation network.
Proper management of environment and cultural heritage needs amongst other timely and accurate information on land cover and land cover changes, which is why the EEA is also in charge of the implementation of the land monitoring service of Copernicus: http://land.copernicus.eu, and of the Copernicus in situ data coordination.
