Publication Land accounts for Europe 1990-2000
Towards integrated land and ecosystem accounting
Located in Publications
Data Land cover accounts (LEAC) based on Corine land cover changes database (1990-2000)
Land cover accounts are part of the Land and Ecosystem Accounting project which deal with data on changes in land cover and land use and seek to trace the wider environmental, social and economic implications of these transformations

Indicator Assessment chemical/x-pdb Land take (CSI 014/LSI 001) - Assessment published Feb 2011
Land take by the expansion of residential areas and construction sites is the main cause of the increase in the coverage of urban land at the European level. Agricultural zones and, to a lesser extent, forests and semi-natural and natural areas, are disappearing in favour of the development of artificial surfaces. This affects biodiversity since it decreases habitats, the living space of a number of species, and fragments the landscapes that support and connect them. The annual land take in 36 European countries was 111 788 ha/year in 2000-2006. In 21 countries covered by both periods (1990-2000 and 2000-2006) the annual land take increased by 9 % in the later period. The composition of land taken areas changed, too. More arable land and permanent crops, forests, grasslands and open spaces and less pastures and mosaic farmland were taken by artificial development then in 1990-2000.
