The Pilbara State of the Environment Report addresses environmental issues impacting on the Pilbara region through applying the same methodology as the Australian State of the Environment Report 2011 ensuring rigor in the approach to research, consultation, the identification of key pressures, issues and indicators, and the development of a framework for measurement and reporting.
The report provides sound information on the environmental resources of the Pilbara and indicators to facilitiate a 'whole of landscape' view of development to provide for the strategic assessment of growth, development and management plans and to inform decision-making for the delivery of improved environmental outcomes. This approach is not intended to prevent development but rather to assist proponents and key decision makers to deliver better environmental outcomes in the context of changing population and climate scenarios.
