MED-ERMIS (Completed)



Based on the fundamental importance of transparency, accountability, and good governance in public management, the Mediterranean Environmental Reporting Monitoring System (MED-ERMIS) project was launched.  Supported by external funding, practical indicators have been developed to be used at the municipal level. These indicators provide communities and local authorities with hard, reliable and quantitative data on environmental, population, economic, and sustainable development activities.

Of the many achievements since this project was initiated in November 2000, the following accomplishments are of main importance:
  • Participation of 17 municipalities
  • Development of 110 indicators, an archive municipality survey, and a door-to-door survey
  • Calculation of more than 40 indicators
  • Development of a web-based software application for data calculation and public dissemination of indicator results (http://www.balamand.edu.lb/medermis/ )
  • Involvement of students and volunteers in the sustainability of MED-ERMIS activities
