Additional information

  • Some 35 % of the change in wetland areas between 2000 and 2006 was due to conversion to agriculture and 49 % to forest creation and afforestation.
  • Of the wetland area converted to other land uses between 1990 and 2000, 2 % were artificialised (e.g. urban areas), 7 % became agricultural, 12 % water bodies, and 79 % forest and semi-natural areas (EEA, 2009).
