Monitoring technical developments in national environmental action plans

Monitoring technical developments in NEAPs
Monitoring the technical capacity of polluters and polluting industries, to develop new environmental technologies, and to meet new environmental standards is an important aspect in developing a National Environmental Action Plan (NEAP). The monitoring of environmental technological developments in industry; the increasing trend towards more sustainable practices and new performance standards, all represent important steps in the implementation of a NEAP. Monitoring such activity and disseminating the information helps promote pollution control methods across industry and encourage other industries to develop more environmentally friendly - and accountable - practices. Measuring the progress of a country's industrial sector towards better environmental control is an important part of the NEAP process.
