Part B: Results

Part B answers the question ‘What progress has been made towards or away from sustainable development in New Zealand?’. To do this we selected 85 indicators to measure environmental, economic, and social dimensions of sustainable development.

We used data from a variety of sources, where possible spanning the 20-year period 1988–2008, to identify target trends for each indicator. These show the desired direction of change according to the principles of sustainable development outlined in part C.

The results of the analysis of the 85 indicators are presented in the following 15 topic chapters. The first topic, population, provides an overall context for human impact on sustainable development. The other 14 topics, broadly grouped as environmental, economic, and social topics, show the observed trends for a range of indicators. Taken together, they show an overall picture of New Zealand’s path towards sustainable development.

  1. Population
  2. Biodiversity
  3. Air and atmosphere
  4. Water
  5. Land use
  6. Energy
  7. Transport
  8. Waste
  9. Innovation
  10. Work, knowledge, and skills
  11. Economic resilience
  12. Living conditions
  13. Health
  14. Social connection and governance
  15. Culture and identity

The structure of each topic is:

  • Main results
  • What the indicators tell us (including graphs)
  • About the indicators.
