Exercise 5.6.3

Understanding the Issue

In groups of 4-5, carry out the following tasks:

  • Select the drivers – pressures – state – impact chain from your exercises in sections 5 and 6 and put this into the first row of the table provided.
  • In the second row, identify an indicator and approximate trend line that, in your best judgment, describes reality, or use actual data if available.
  • Note major changes in the indicator trend over time.

  Drivers Pressures State Impact
Indicator and trend        

Time: 20 minutes.

Identifying and explaining key trends in environmental state indicators is a central part of creating
a baseline understanding for policy analysis. Environmental state may be influenced by anthropogenic drivers and pressures and these typically have some underlying policies. For instance, over-fishing may be driven by the availability of easy credit for fishing fleet development and no restrictions on potentially damaging fishing practices. However, state variables are also affected by natural causes, and phenomena such as El Niño events can contribute to fish population dynamics in positive and negative ways.

Such an analysis can also be conducted to better understand pressures and drivers. The case example presented in section 4.4.2, relating to automobile fuel efficiency, illustrates this.

What sort of music do you like? proventil hfa generic available A prime example of this is Anguilla, a low-lying island 16 miles long, three miles wide and still a British overseas territory, complete with red postboxes and annual celebrations of the Queen’s birthday. It is blessed with some of the best beaches in the world – long stretches of clean, pale sand that are never crowded and are bordered by an intensely blue sea. Jet skis are banned, hawkers are rare, and the only cruise ships calling are of the small, smart variety.
