Intersecretariat Working Group on Environment Statistics (IWG-ENV)
There are many international and regional organizations engaging in the collection and compilation of environmental statistics. The UN Statistical Commission, at its 34th session, empowered UNSD to convene the Intersecretariat Working Group on Environment Statistics (IWG-ENV) to coordinate and harmonize the development of standards, methods, data collections and capacity building programmes in environment statistics.
The permanent members of the IWG-ENV are organisations/agencies that have a well-established international programme on environment statistics, including direct and regular collection of comprehensive environment statistics from countries. Other organisations/agencies and countries with experience in specific areas of environment statistics are invited to participate in specific IWG-ENV activities.
