National administrations, research institutes, local authorities and the private sector provide such information as well as European institutions. This study at hand presents information for an approach to an integrated view and possible access paths to environmental information in Europe. The structure of a proposed Single Information Space in Europe for the Environment is analysed from a legislative, political, and organisational viewpoint with respect to current EU programs. In-depth the present and future IT implementation options are discussed. The content of such an information space is addressed on the basis of a screening of sources of environmental information in the previous ICTENSURE deliverable D7.1.
