State of the Environment

The state of the environment is regularly monitored and assessed in assessment and statistical reports, particularly the State of the Environment Reports, presented by the Government to the House of Representatives, and the Statistical Environmental Yearbooks.

Both the assessment reports provide information on the state of the environment for recent years and are publicly available. The documents summarise the current knowledge on the state and trends of the individual environmental components, environmental impacts of the economic sectors, environmental policy instruments, impacts of the current state of the environment on human health and ecosystems, and the state of the environment in an international context.
