Most of the environmental issues and policy is the competence of the three regions (Flanders, Walloon and Brussels) in Belgium
Flanders has its own Environmental Policy Plan 2003-2007: formal planning process with public involvement/participation
Environmental Policy Plan is approved by the Flemish government and Parliament
Dissemination of environmental information and public involvement in decision-making is explicit part of the Environmental Policy Plan
Action force: Environmental Management Information System: linking all existing environmental information in one logical database easily accessible to all (governmental) organisations, policy-makers (management system) and the public.
Through the internet: different websites of existing (governmental) organisations. This information is scattered and not integrated. Environmental information is available service-minded (what is available) , not really question-based (what is needed)
Special task force on e-government during the last 3 years, supported by the Flemish government, for all the different policy domains: one portal site for the Flemish governmental organisations and an integrated backoffice. Organised through the different policy domains such as Environment.
Other channels: paper, telephone, the old-fashioned desk, digital television,…
The different governmental organisations concerning the environment (on the level the the Flemish region) have internet-sites that supplies specific environmental information on their activities and tasks: air, water, soil, waste management, nature conservation, biodiversity, land management, ….
In 2002: preparation of the formal Environmental Policy Plan (to be approved officially by government and parliament). Public enquiry was included and the draft Environmental policy plan was available through the internet. A special internet-application was set up to guide the public through the content of the plan. There was a possibility to give your own opinion about the plan through the internet. Also the follow-up of the plan can be followed through the internet-site http://www.milieubeleidsplan.be
Spatial planning in Flanders is arranged by specific execution plans. Changes of these plans inquiry public opinion and participation. All information is published on a website http://www.ruimtelijkeordening.be
Environmental Impact Assessment (SEA and EIA): new legislation in Flanders (end 2003), public participation at the scoping phase, all information, including summaries will be published on a website: http://www.mervlaanderen.be. Public inquiry will also be possible through the internet
Extranet between all (governmental) organisations concerning the environment: information exchange
Centralized information systems to support environmental policy and to link different dossiers: centralized database on enterprises, environmental licences and emission activities (important for EPER, IPPC, greenhouse gasses,…)
Linking different administration processes (follow-up of dossiers) between organisation: improving efficiency, service and dissemination of environmental information
