New Zealand's Environmental Reporting Series: Environment Aotearoa 2015 presents information about our air, atmosphere and climate, fresh water, land, and marine environment, with the theme of biodiversity across these domains. It includes information about the human and natural pressures that cause changes to the state of these domains and the impacts these changes have on our environment, economy, and way of life.
Jointly produced by Statistics New Zealand and the Ministry for the Environment, the robust, independent evidence in Environment Aotearoa 2015 will help New Zealanders understand our environment and underpin well-informed debate and decision-making about managing our natural resources.
