Appendix 2: Additional data sources

After the Stocktake for the environment domain plan 2012 was published, several data sources within that were identified as informing additional enduring questions. For example, a data source listed in the stocktake as informing land was subsequently identified as also informing freshwater. This identification was made by subject matter experts during the gap analysis or in the topic workshops.

Table 24 lists these data sources. Note that the list is not exhaustive.

New data sources, identified after publication of the stocktake, are in table 25.
