The United Nations Statistical Division (UNSD), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) TEEB Office, and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity are the implementing agencies of the Natural Capital Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services project. This project is funded by the European Union. It aims at assisting participating partner countries to advance the knowledge agenda on environmental and ecosystem accounting, to initiate pilot testing of SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting and ecosystem valuation and to mainstream ecosystem related analysis and decision making at national, city and corporate level. The development of the knowledge agenda is undertaken with a view to improve the overall management of natural biotic resources, ecosystems and their services at various levels of decision making and mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystems in policy-planning and implementation.
The project has the duration of 3 years. It aims to assist the compilation of the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting in 5 partner countries, namely Brazil, China, India, Mexico and South Africa.
In each country, the project will be executed through a mutually agreed National Plan and its related programme of work and will be overseen by national steering committee chaired by the National Statistics Office.
