Report on the Environment of the Czech Republic
Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic

The Report on the Environment is a basic environmental reporting document of the Czech Republic. The methodology of the Report did not change much between 1994 and 2008, and therefore it was published in a similar form, only with slight changes. As the need and demand for information and expert support for the processes of the creation and implementation of environmental strategies have grown, the methodology of the Report has been modified in 2009 in order to better reflect the requirements of those who use it and to provide conclusions relevant to policy-making.
