Environment Statistics – A compendium by the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (2011)

The Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) has come up with a Compendium of Environment Statistics 2011, the twelfth edition of the series, which started in 1997.

It broadly covers five core parameters, viz., biodiversity, atmosphere, land/soil, water and human settlements suggested by the Framework for Development of Environment Statistics (FDES) published by United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in 1984.

The FDES sets out the scope of environment statistics by relating the components of the environment to information categories that are based on the recognition that environmental problems are the result of human activities and natural events reflecting a sequence of action, impact, and reaction.

Through this annual publication, MoSPI is trying to bring out the environment related information to the extent to which the data exhibits the pattern of changes and their magnitudes in the Indian context.

The compendium can be viewed at the MoSPI website here.
