Environmental Profile of Spain 2017 [NIPO: 013-18-133-3]


The Environmental Profile of Spain 2017 is the 14th edition of the Ministry for Ecological Transition report on the state of the environment in Spain.

As in years past, this publication provides an overview of the situation, increases our knowledge about the environment, provides specific data, monitors policies intended to mainstream environmental criteria into the country’s production sectors, and serves as an important tool in the ongoing dissemination and awareness-raising campaigns run by the Ministry for Ecological Transition.

The report contains 81 indicators, organized in 18 chapters plus one specific section containing information on each autonomous region. Each chapter has an introduction and key messages where an assessment is made on the events that have occurred over previous years. On the other hand, each indicator section includes charts, an explanatory analysis and a notes section, stating the data source and the web links where it is possible to find more information. Likewise, the document begins with a "General Framework" chapter complementing environmental information with social and economic data and integrated review about selected topics.
