Prepared every three years, the NSW State of the Environment (SoE) reports on the status of key environmental issues facing New South Wales.
The SoE 2015 report presents 20 themes grouped under the two categories: ‘environmental drivers’ and ‘environmental resources’. Across the 20 themes the report rates 65 specific indicators for status, environmental trends, and information availability.
As with all NSW SoE reporting, the 2015 report relies on extensive contributions from many NSW Government departments and agencies, as well as within the EPA. Data and information in the 2015 report was appraised and validated by NSW agencies through an extensive process of review. Independent experts also provided a range of perspectives, additions and helpful advice.
