In order to have a better view of these different monitoring initiatives we have designed a survey that examines the objectives, functionality and potentials of the observatories. This deliverable aims at providing a global and comprehensive analysis of Euro-Mediterranean observatories landscape. For this reason the survey compares observatories that exist in various areas (most if not all being related to environmental challenges). This work is intended to support a further step that was initially planned in the work plan of MEDSPRING project, to create a possibility of interaction among these observatories including common activities, training, data sharing etc. Thus questions were designed to have a large view on the activities deployed by each observatory.
