Development of built-up and traffic area in Germany 1993 to 2001


The type and intensity of land use is an important structural pressure by economic activities on the environment. Land is an unconditionally scarce, non-renewable resource. In the present paper results are presented of the German Environmental Economic Accounts on built-up and traffic area by economic activities. It is demonstrated that the data can be used for different approaches of environmental-economic analysis which are already known from investigating the development of other environmental variables like energy or air emissions. Under German conditions two types of land accounts seem to be of special importance, firstly comprehensive ecosystem accounts covering the appearance and quality of ecosystems and secondly special accounts on built-up and traffic area which link the area use with the causing economic activities.
