Environment Statistics provide information on the state and changes of environmental conditions; the quality and availability of environmental resources; and the impact of human activities and natural events on the environment. Environment statistics also give information on the impact of the changing environmental conditions; and the responses of individuals, societies and Government to the impacts.
Environment statistics are used to provide information to support evidence-based policy and decision-making in development planning and environmental management.
Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of environment statistics, they are sourced from a variety of data producers (e.g. Government departments, research institutions and non-governmental institutions) who generate the statistics in their day to day activities in accordance with their mandate.
The indicators produced under environment statistics include the following;
- Human Population
- Natural Disasters
- Waste Management
