As a citizen, you have a right of access to environmental information of Belgium. Every four years, the federal government publishes a federal report on the environment (only exists in French and Dutch) in collaboration with all federal agencies whose scope of activity have or may have an impact on the environment. Notes on federal environmental indicators (only exists in French and Dutch) are also published every four years, two years after the federal report.

The first federal environmental report published in 2010 helped to create a comprehensive inventory of the competences of each federal agency with regard to environmental matters. The main purpose of the following reports is to demonstrate the evolution of the situation in relation to this initial description.

The main lesson that could be drawn from this initial report is that important environmental responsibilities or related to the environment are still assigned at the federal level.

The reports are available in french or dutch.
