State of the Environment Reports
A growing number of international organizations, countries, states and regional governments, and non-governmental organizations are producing reports providing and overview of the "state of the environment" in their area of responsibility and interest. These report vary in content and quality. Most national reports are in English, some in the country's major language, some in both. Many were facilitated by the United Nations Environment Program through its Global Resources Information Database (GRID) center in Arendal, Norway. The U.S. state reports have been compiled in part from the work of the Florida Center for Public Management. If you are aware of reports not included below, please let us know.
