Queensland Government State of Environment Report
About the State of the Environment report
‘State of the Environment’ reporting is the internationally accepted method for assessing environmental performance. Like many other countries, Australia adopts the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) pressure-state-response approach to state of the environment reporting. Queensland also adopts this approach.
A State of the Environment report is produced every four years for Queensland. This is the sixth report and the first to be prepared in a web-based format. The new format allows users to interact within a web-based environment, interrogating spatial data and maps with regionally-specific interpretive text, tables, graphs and charts.
The data is harvested from a range of thematic sources, and compiled, interpreted and published through the Queensland Government open data portal.
