State of the Environment
Reports on the State of the Environment
Reports are published every year to inform about the state of the environment, about its causes and impacts, development trends as well as measures undertaken to improve the state of the environment. Since 2016 an extra chapter is included analyzing current issues. Until now special chapters focused e.g. on global megatrends, circular economy and environment and the health. An extended report is published every four years, with first such report prepared in 2019. The last published report State of the Environment Report for the Slovak Republic State of the Environment for 2018 is available in the English language version.
You can find all the reports on the webpage https://www.enviroportal.sk/spravy/soer.
