Abstract

In this paper, we provide descriptions of the official statistical information sources regarding the environment with a focus on soil and water. The discussion focuses on two major contributors of official statistical information in the field, ISTAT and ISPRA, describing their internal structures and links to corresponding EU institutions. We further review their latest production of statistical information on soil and water and provide several suggestions for the potential development of the field.
