The environment in Ile-de-France in 2011

Executive Summary

18 avril 2013Contact

In response to the lack of data on the environment and to the weak dissemination of such data beyond the specialist circles, the Regional Council decided to develop and make available a collection of data on the environment in Île-de-France. Production of the document was entrusted to IAU Île-de-France, the Region's Institute for Urban Planning and Development, one of whose missions is to be a centre of regional knowledge. For this third edition, a steering committee was set up (with representatives from the Regional Council, and from environment agencies and observatories). The document has been enriched with new topics such as: landscape, geological heritage, forestry, climate change, territory schemes, and environment-related economy.


Île-de-France is one of France’s leading agricultural regions thanks, in particular, to the fertility of its soil.
