UNECE Statistical Database
This site shows what proportion of a country’s total terrestrial and marine area that is designated as a protected area. You can choose different countries to compare!
This database is maintained by the Statistical Division of the UNECE Secretariat. It provides free access to data structured to facilitate easy retrieval of statistics by users. It is organised by subject or policy areas. Multi-dimensional tables present data by country, by various socio-economic classifications related to the context, and by time period.
The data are compiled by the Statistical Division from different official national and international sources. Emphasis has been placed on making the data ready for international comparison and immediate analytical use, as well as on making them easy to find. Users may be particularly interested in the statistics on CIS and central and eastern European countries, which are difficult to find elsewhere in a single integrated database.
