The EEA assesses the state of the environment using a so called "DPSIR methodology". Namely, the state (S) is the result of specific drivers (D) and pressures (P), positive or negative, which impact (I) the environment. The responses (R) represent the solutions (e.g. policies, investments) for what should then be done to improve or maintain that state. The report also looks at "outlooks" for the state of the environment – to point out what will happen to that state over time (e.g. 2020, 2050) based on various scenarios.
