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 2019 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 chapters present 45 fact sheets, organised in eight environmental domains: Economy and Environment, Energy and Climate, Transport, Air and Noise, Water, Soil and Biodiversity, Waste and Environmental Risks.

In addition to the fact sheets, the REA 2019 also includes an infographic which summarize the key aspects of the evolution of the analysed indicators.

The REA 2019 includes an English version of the Executive Summary and Infographic.
