Land cover classification

 Issue Description

There is no internationally agreed classification of land use nor land cover. CORINE land cover and the FAO Land Cover Classification System (LCCS) seem to be the most commonly used classifications. Should these two classifications be reconciled and a land cover classifications agreed in the revised SEEA? Should a separate classification on land use be included in the revised SEEA?
