Environmental monitoring in Breda

Description of context
Please note - there is limited information available about this case study

Description of project - background
Some ten years ago environmental monitoring was attempted for the first time. An external investigation tried to determine useful indicators. Hundreds of indicators were selected, which was not workable. Finally, monitoring started with less than 10 indicators, and the results over the years were published in a book. As the monitoring was not anchored in the policy, this initiative ended. Recently monitoring was seen again as a useful instrument. It was started up again, partly on request of the management.

Meanwhile an "environmental view" had begun fixing (global) aims on a semi long term (2000-2015).

Description of project - objectives/aims
