Environment Statistics Self-Assessment Tool (ESSAT)

UNSD, in collaboration with the Expert Group on Environment Statistics, has developed the Environment Statistics Self-Assessment Tool (ESSAT) in support of the FDES 2013. The purpose of the ESSAT is to assist countries in both developing their environment statistics programmes and collecting their own data on the environment, and to assess the state of environment statistics and the needs for their development at the national level consistent with the scope of the FDES 2013.
