Activities  Capacity Building Caspian Environment Programme (CEP)

The Caspian Environment Programme (CEP) was developed, with assistance from the Global Environment Fund (GEF), as a comprehensive response to the key environmental problems facing the region and to address priority transboundary issues. The overall goal of the CEP, which includes all Caspian littoral states, is "environmentally sustainable development and management of the Caspian environment" and regional coordination in general.

In 2001, GRID-Europe assisted the CEP in the development of a Caspian Information System ("CaspSIS") and Caspian Geographic Information System ("CaspGIS"), derived information and related products and tools, as well as to provide advice and technical back-stopping for the data/information management component of the CEP, including technical training.
