PREFACE

Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends 2007 is the 4th edition in a series that presents a broad selection of environmental statistics and information on topical environmental issues. By drawing on a wide range of ABS statistics and statistics from other official sources, Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends describes major aspects of Australia’s environment and how these are changing over time. It is designed to assist and encourage informed decision-making, and to meet the information needs of a general readership.

The material presented in Australia's Environment: Issues and Trends 2007 is organised into two main parts. The first part explores an issue of major environmental concern, and the issue chosen for the 2007 edition is water. The second part covers major trends of relevance to the environment, included under five broad headings: population, human activities, atmosphere, water, and landscape.

The opportunity has been taken to use the most recently available data to update analysis of topics examined in previous editions. The publication does not aim to present data on all environmental issues and other topics will be covered in future editions.

The production of this publication would not have been possible without the contributions of numerous organisations and individuals. The ABS is grateful for this help.

The ABS welcomes readers' suggestions on how the publication could be improved. To comment or to ask for more information, please contact the Director of the Centre of Environment and Energy Statistics.
