DURHAM SUSTAIN ABILITY'S PATH

1997 - SOE Poster Map

1997 - SOE Poster Map

The State of the Environment poster map was prepared by Durham Environmental Network and has a two-fold purpose:

  1. On one side it provides a detailed illustration of Durham Region’s natural environment and human activity features.
  2. The other side provides an analysis of five environmental indicators categories: Green Space; Air; Water; Energy; and Waste. 

The poster map is intended to introduce Durham Region to the concept of State of the Environment (SOE) reporting. SOE reporting is a mechanism for understanding changes – their trends, causes and impacts. It is also a tool for evaluating the effectiveness of policies and practices to provide a basis for improved decision-making.
