Short description from SERIS (old):

The Federal Council's "Environment Switzerland 2018" report provides an overview of the state and development of the environment in our country. It shows Switzerland's influence on the global state of natural resources and explains the regional differences and key trends observed in the Central Plateau, the Jura, the Pre-Alps, the Alps and the Southern Alps. The report also takes stock of the implementation of environmental policy and identifies the main challenges.
