The Department of Statistics is pleased to release its fourth issue of the Environment Statistics Compendium. In alignment with the Department’s mission to collect, process and analyze relevant statistical information; and, in keeping with its mandate to collaborate with Government Ministries and Departments for the collation and distribution of statistics to the general public; this publication is produced annually and reflects the collation of existing data sourced from the activities of both Government and non-Governmental entities that are involved in either monitor-ing, controlling or promoting awareness about issues affecting Bermuda’s environment.

Additionally, the delivery of this report supports the combined efforts of the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) to strengthen capacity and harmonize the compilation of social, gender and environmental statistics and indicators in the CARICOM Region for the achievement of the UN Millennium Development Goals by 2015.

The Compendium is structured in 13 sections which include:

1. Population and Households

2. Tourism

3. Environmental Health/Weather

4. Natural and Environmental Disasters

5. Energy, Minerals and Transport

6. Agriculture

7. Land Use

8. Coastal and Marine Resources

9. Biodiversity

10. Forestry

11. Air

The Department gratefully acknowledges the continued support of all subject area experts and stakeholders who committed to providing the statistical data and information needed to compile and publish this report.
