Short description: EXTRACT: Actions Published: 29 Mar 2011 Demand for land in Europe is high. Food and biomass production, housing, infrastructure and recreation all compete for space, with impacts on our climate, biodiversity and ecosystem services. In a recent assessment, the European Environment Agency (EEA) analyses land use change in Europe, concluding that we need an integrated policy approach based on reliable data to balance sectoral demands and manage land sustainably. Themes Land use Biodiversity Policy instruments The land use assessment published as a part of the EEA's flagship report The European environment – state and outlook 2010 (SOER 2010) covers 36 European countries and a total area of 5.42 million km2.
