As part of the project “Advancing the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting in pilot countries”, the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in collaboration with the United Nations Environment Programme and the Convention of Biological Diversity is working with the National Statistical Office of Indonesia to develop a National Plan for advancing environmental-economic accounting in the country.
This project aims to support policy decisions in Indonesia by strengthening the national statistical system and contributing to develop an information system for sustainable development based on comparable environmental-economic accounts, including ecosystem accounts.
