The United Nations ESCAP organized a Workshop on Environment Statistics for East and North-East Asian countries. The Workshop was held at the ESCAP East and North-East Asia Office in Incheon, Republic of Korea, from 13-15 March 2017.
Taking advantage of existing knowledge and experience on environment statistics in the subregion, the Workshop provided a platform for exchanging these experiences to strengthen capacity on basic approaches to environment statistics, the Framework for the Development of Environment Statistics (FDES) and the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA), as well as strategic planning for improving environment statistics. The examples of the topics discussed during the Workshop included SEEA energy, water, and land accounts.
The Workshop was participated by technical staff from national statistical offices, ministries of environment, as well as planning and finance offices.
