Additional information

Between 2000 and 2006 three main types of coastal land-use trends occured:

  • artificial surfaces increased by almost 1 500 km2 (slightly smaller than the surface of Tenerife);
  • pasture and mixed farmland showed a major decrease of more than 500 km2;
  • arable lands and permanent crops decreased by 400 km2.

These figures should be read in conjunction with those for Coastal ecosystems (figure 9.1). It can be seen that the general impacts in the (wider) coastal zone are greater as a proportion of area to those specifically within coastal ecosystems.
