Developing a forest naturalness indicator for Europe

Concept and methodology for a high nature value (HNV) forest indicator: European forests are a complex mosaic of conditions, constantly influenced by internal dynamics and external pressures determined by natural and anthropogenic factors. This report documents the first steps for the development of a forest naturalness indicator for Europe. An enhanced European HNV forest indicator and its corresponding map will enable us to gain better insight into the current status and extent of forest naturalness, and will allow for further analyses on spatial and time trends.

Global megatrend update: 7 Intensified global competition for resources

As they grow, economies tend to use more resources. While the rising living standards that drive these trends are unquestionably welcome, they create obvious risks. The world is a closed material system, implying finite limits on the amounts of resources available. Innovation plays a complex role in shaping the demand for and supply of resources. The impacts of intensifying global competition for resources will therefore depend greatly on whether technological development can be steered towards establishing more resource-efficient ways of meeting society's needs.

Consumption and the environment - SOER 2010 thematic assessment

The consumption of goods and services in EEA member countries is a major driver of global resource use and associated environmental impacts. Growth in global trade is resulting in an increasing share of environmental pressures and impacts from European consumption taking place beyond Europe. Food and drink, housing, mobility and tourism are responsible for a large part of the pressures and impacts caused by consumption in the EU. Achieving significant reductions in environmental pressures and impacts will require changing private and public consumption patterns, to supplement gains achieved through better technology and improved production processes.
