Environment Aotearoa 2019 

Every three years we produce a ‘synthesis’ report bringing together the data and findings from across the domain reports. This helps us to step inside and view our environment as a whole, in all its complexity. Environment Aotearoa 2019 uses five themes to look into nine priority issues – those that matter most to the current state of our environment.
