State of the Environment Report

Latest edition

The State of the Environment Report (REA) has been, like most of its international counterparts, an important instrument for communicating the factual state of the environment at national level.

The 2020-21 edition begins by presenting the national socio-economic framework, followed by the update of the macroeconomic scenarios, two contrasting scenarios (High and Low) for the possible evolution of the Portuguese economy in the 2050 horizon, as well as two international scenarios (High and Low) for world GDP and European Union GDP.

The following chapter presents 46 fact sheets, organised in eight environmental domains: Economy and Environment, Energy and Climate, Transport, Air, Water, Soil and Biodiversity, Waste and Environmental Risks.

In addition to the fact sheets, the REA 2020-21 also includes two infographics, one which summarises the key aspects of the evolution of some of the analysed indicators and second one which brings together some figures that characterise the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the environment.
