Municipal Environmental Audit
MEA is a model of environmental auditing especially tailored for the Baltic cities. The purpose is to offer a tool for city management and environmental experts to analyse and describe the current state of local environment and identify and assess the strengths and weaknesses of the environment within the municipality. This helps to develop a broad based environmental strategy in accordance with the principles of sustainable development. MEA helps in identifying and preparing the basis for future investments and development projects, and aims for full public participation in the development of environmental strategies.
