PIR is an excellent example on operational thematic SDI, which has significant socio-economic impact providing benefit in the fields of public health, agricultural and environmental policy planning, implementation and control. HUNAGI promoted this innovative approach at the Side Meeting on Environment and Health organised by EPA at the GEO- V Plenary in Bucarest last November.
