Observatory of Andorran Mountains
CC BY 4.0 Andorra Recerca + Innovació

The Observatory of Andorran Mountains was set up in 2013 with the aim of publicizing the evolution of the physical and biotic elements of Andorra, using scientific indicators.

The indicators represented on this website are the result of scientific research related to various follow-up studies carried out by Andorra Research + Innovation in the Andorran context. The OMA consultation tool, with the aim of expanding, is designed to provide knowledge and enable decision-making to all types of users: students, professionals, administration and socio-economic agents.

The indicators are grouped into four main themes: biodiversity, climate and snow, conservation and territory and natural hazards and allow to:

  • Know the evolution of the landscape.
  • Know the degree of effectiveness of management measures.
  • Evaluate global change and climate change.
  • Evaluate the effects of climate change.
  • Evaluate the effects of global change.
  • Evaluate the effects of certain impacts.
  • Understand the evolution of natural hazards.

It should be noted that environmental indicators are essential tools for assessing local, regional and global environmental policies and are therefore used in many countries in Europe and America. They are used in many different ways, but what they all have in common is that they are trying to answer the key question: what is going on?

This web portal provides information on the state and evolution of aspects related to the environment and the mountains of Andorra based on indicators. To follow the same international standard in the representation of indicators, the OMA portal is inspired by the European International Agency portal and its indicators, which are European standards. The data displayed on the portal also make it possible to make comparisons of the Andorran environmental reality with that of surrounding countries, as well as to make temporal comparisons.
