Improve the timeliness of environmental data and indicators, and their use for policy advice
One of the main tasks of the Federal Environment Agency is to provide data on the environment. They provide information on environmental pollution and environmental status in Germany and are an important tool for policy advice, as they provide information on the need for action or success. Because of the complexity of the system linkages, there are often extensive calculation methods behind the indicators. The up-to-dateness of the data is decisive - also for public perception. Against this background, the project aims to improve the timeliness of central environmental data and environmental indicators. For this purpose, estimation methods are developed and applied for selected quantities.
