The European Topic Centre on Inland, Coastal and Marine waters (ETC/ICM) is an international consortium brought together to support the European Environment Agency (EEA) in its mission to deliver timely, targeted, relevant and reliable information to policy-makers and the public for the development and implementation of sound environmental policies in the European Union and other EEA member countries.
The intention is to establish a seamless environmental information system to assist the Commission and EEA member countries in their attempts to improve the environment, move towards sustainability and integrate environmental policies with other sectors such as economic, social, transport, industry, energy and agriculture.
