CLC changes between 1990 and 2006 (km2)
- Artificial surfaces (building development, infrastructure, etc.) increased the most between 1990 and 2006 as a proportion of total area.
- Heath and scrub habitat increased (+ 5.9 %; more than 13 000 km2) and grassland decreased (– 1.2 %; more than 4 000 km2): both changes can be linked to land abandonment.
