The Stocktake for the Environment Domain Plan 2012 provides an overview of the national-level environmental statistics and data currently available in 10 environmental topic areas: climate change, atmosphere, fresh water, coastal and marine environment, land, materials and waste, energy, mineral resources, ecosystems and biodiversity, and Māori environmental statistics.
Information in the stocktake will be used to help identify gaps, overlaps, and deficiencies in current data. This will allow us to seek initiatives to address the issues.
The stocktake was compiled with the cooperation of many data custodians, including government agencies and Crown research institutes. The participation of these organisations and their support for the domain plan is appreciated.
This stocktake is part of the work being undertaken by Statistics NZ, the Ministry for the Environment, and the Department of Conservation, to develop a domain plan for the environment.
