Author: Environment Agency Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
This report sets out information on the current state of London's environment and the issues affecting it for which the Environment Agency has a primary interests. The following issues, which are of particular importance for London, are discussed in this report: air quality, water quality, biodiversity, water resources, waste management, waste management, flooding, riverside development, transport, climate change and land quality. Under each of these issues the EA had presented a number of indicators to enable us to monitor the future state of the environment and the pressures acting upon it. The recent trends shown by these indicators are summarised opposite. Whilst the report focuses on the current state of London's environment, many of the issues raised have an influence over a much wider area. London is reliant on this wider environmental catchment for its basic resources, such as water, and to dispose of its waste. For all of these issues, the impacts of actions in London can have a direct effect on the surrounding region's environment and vice versa. Some of the indicators in this report have been included to reflect London's strategic importance.
