Short description from SERIS (old):

The Estonian Environmental Review 2013 is an English translation from last year’s publication “Keskkonnaülevaade 2013”. This overview provides information about the state of the environment of Estonia, focusing on the period of 2009-2012. The Estonian Environmental Review 2013 is a publication that describes the state of the environment and the pressures exerted on the environment in Estonia. It covers all key environmental aspects in order to provide as comprehensive an overview of the surrounding environment as possible. The environmental review is published every four years. This edition is similar in structure to the previous environmental reviews, in order to ensure the uniformity and comparability of time series data. While the review focuses on the last four years, some time series are longer in order to highlight the trends more effectively. As the title of the publication indicates, the topics are dealt broadly. However, each chapter includes references to sources and additional materials for those readers who wish to explore the topic in more detail. The previous review was published before the economic downturn. This edition shows how changes in various spheres of the economy have affected the environment. It is clear that decreased and more responsible consumption during the economic recession has had a positive impact on the environment. The publication begins with a socio-economic overview. The subsequent chapters provide an overview of natural resources in Estonia, weather and climate, waste management, air quality, land use changes, urban ecology, biological diversity, environment and health and environmental management tools. The publication also deals with some new topics, such as green economy, urban ecology and ecosystem services, which have recently become the focus of attention. “Estonian Environmental Review 2013” is an online-publication.
