Environmental indicators

Environmental indicators cast light over the state and development of the environment and related issues such as human health.

These indicators can give information about very specific and local matters, such as water pollution or solid waste generation. They can also be used to gauge more general environmental matters at the global level such as climate change and the human ecological footprint.
