This report reviews the status of the 28
countries of Europe and Central Asia (ECA) with respect to
the environmental Millennium Development Goal (MDG). The aim
of this goal is to 'ensure environmental
sustainability,' which is elaborated by a set of three
targets and eight indicators. The indicators for the
environment MDG are important not only as measures of
environmental sustainability, but also as contributors to
the health and poverty goals. In ECA, these linkages are
clearly brought out for the water supply and sanitation
indicators, but also apply to the carbon reduction, forestry
and biodiversity indicators. The three targets and its
indicator are: (i) halve, by 2015, the proportion of people
without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic
sanitation: (a) proportion of population with sustainable
access to an improved water source; and (b) proportion of
population with access to basic sanitation; (ii) integrate
the principles of sustainable development into country
policies and programs and reverse the losses of
environmental resources: (a) energy use (kg oil equivalent)
per $1 GDP(Purchasing Power Parity(PPP)); (b) carbon dioxide
emissions (per capita); (c) proportion of land area covered
by forest; (d) ratio of area protected to maintain
biological diversity to surface area; and (e) proportion of
population using solid fuels; (iii) by 2020 to have achieved
a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100
million slum dwellers: (a) proportion of households with
access to secure tenure.
