Our aim is for the cross-domain themes to enhance our understanding of each domain and their interaction with each other, and the relationships between pressures, states, and impacts.
In future, we could present the cross-domain themes through one part of the reporting framework (ie pressure, state, or impact), or all three. Examples of cross-domain themes that focus on one component of the pressure-state-impact framework are climate effects (pressure), economic impacts, and impacts on biodiversity (impacts). Examples of aspects of the environment that cover more than one part of the reporting framework are climate change, biodiversity, and pests.
Currently, we do not have enough data to take a cross-themed approach for all aspects of the environment covered in this report. However, we have included an example of this approach in this report – see Biodiversity chapter.
