Indicators 2012

Estonian Environmental Indicators 2012 is an English-language version of the publication Eesti Keskkonnanäitajad 2012, and gives an overview of the Estonian environmental status on the basis of environmental indicators. In addition to status indicators, this issue puts more emphasis on the indicators that affect the environmental condition.


The book is divided into 11 chapters – background indicators, mineral resources, fisheries, game animals, water, forest, biodiversity, air and climate, waste, environment and health, and funding. Most of the themes include individually or jointly three types of indicators: indicators of pressure, status and measures. The type has been specified for each indicator; most indicators also include the most significant associated environmental or background indicators.


This issue based on environmental indicators is designated for anyone interested in the environmental status of Estonia. The book offers a strategic objective, timeline and short analysis for each main environmental topic on the basis of the newest information available during the first half of 2012.
