Measuring the Condition of Europe’s Ecosystems
European Environment Agency’s (EEA) new analysis studied the means of measuring the condition of Europe’s natural capital providing first data of the state of Europe’s ecosystems. Forests, soils, seas and other ecosystems form Europe’s ‘natural capital’.
According to the report, the distribution and location of ecosystems in Europe is generally stable. The urban areas and other infrastructure, however, tend to expand at the expense of farmland and semi-natural ecosystems. EEA reports that for water quantity and fish biomass, both are largely exploited and need to be closely monitored.
All in all, there is a clear lack of data to better measure the condition of Europe’s land and sea ecosystems. To this aim, investments in these data are necessary for a sustainable management of Europe’s natural capital, which is vital for our well-being and the economy.
