Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics
As a follow-up to the programme review of energy statistics during the 36th Session of the UN Statistical Commission (1-4 March 2005) and the recommendations of the Ad-hoc Expert Group on Energy Statistics (New York, 23-25 May 2005), the UN Statistical Commission approved the establishment of the Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics to:
“…enhance the coordination of international energy statistics and the collaboration of international (global, regional and sectoral) organizations with a view to improving the availability and quality of international energy statistics without increasing the response burden on countries and by making best use of resources”. (see also the terms of reference)
The terms of reference of the Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics include the following:
Members of Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics include: international organizations and agencies engaged in the collection of energy statistics from countries at the global, regional and sectoral levels; and major users of international energy statistics. The Secretariat of the Intersecretariat Working Group rotates among the members biennially. Currently, the International Energy Agency serves as Secretariat.
The Intersecretariat Working Group on Energy Statistics meets on a regular basis and reports regularly to the UN Statistical Commission.
