April 2012 - March 2013 St. Helena State of the Environment Report

The Environmental Management Division (EMD) - St Helena Government (2013)

To find out how our environment is faring, St. Helena’s first ever State of the Environment Report has been created. This report hopes to provide a snapshot of the environment of St Helena over the 2012/13 financial year. It is not a report on a set of agreed, considered environmental indicators (the process for setting these will be developed over the coming years) but is rather a report on some areas of the environment that are already being measured and monitored on St. Helena. Collating and reporting on this, serves also to highlight gaps in information. This report will be produced on a regular basis and it is anticipated that, as the years pass, the production of this report will allow us to see trends in our environmental data and to fill information gaps, allowing us to more effectively target our efforts to manage our unique environment.
