The State of the Environment Report is a requirement in The Environmental Management and Protection Act, 2010, with the specific purpose of producing a report “concerning the current condition of the environment in Saskatchewan and the relationships between the condition of the environment and the economy of Saskatchewan.” It is updated every two years.
The Government of Saskatchewan continues to improve its reporting to offer accessible and comprehensive information to enhance our understanding of the environment. The most recent data is reported in each measure, and often depends on the availability and frequency of reporting from third parties. As such, some information may be from years prior.
The report will provide the following information in each section:
Why we measure this
A simple explanation of what information the environmental indicator conveys and why that information is important.
What is happening
An explanation, graph or map, of how human activities are having an impact on specific environmental measures.
What we are doing
Actions being taken to improve or maintain environmental conditions.
