UNSD Workshop on Environment Statistics

The United Nations Statistics Division, in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, organized a Workshop on Environment Statistics that was held in Yaoundé, Cameroon from 5 to 9 December 2011. The Workshop, attended by participants from national statistical offices and environmental ministries/agencies of the Central African region, emphasized basic concepts, methods and best practices in environment statistics. It also provided a forum for the exchange of information on the current status of national environment statistics and the development of a way forward for a regional programme on environment statistics. The workshop was held in English and French. The work schedule [English][French], presentations, country papers and final report [English][French] are presented here through the relevant links.
