UNSD/ECE Joint Meeting on Environmental Indicators

Geneva, 31 August - 2 September, 2009

The joint meeting brought together statisticians and environmental experts from the countries of the Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia (EECCA) region and South-Eastern Europe as well as from other European countries and international/regional organizations. The objectives of the meeting were to (i) discuss priorities and modalities of cooperation on methodological issues of environmental indicators in 2009-2010; (ii) review in detail selected indicators covered by the UNECE Indicator Guidelines to provide practical recommendations on the use of statistical classifications, data collection methods and procedures for the production of indicators; (iii) exchange information on international developments related to environmental indicators that may be important but are currently not included in the Guidelines and provide references to available guidance materials; (iv) initiate discussions on modern presentation formats and tools for effective dissemination of environmental indicators including the use of modern information technologies.
