Supporting the implementation of the Framework for the development of environment statistics (FDES 2013)
19-10-2015 – 23-10-2015 Lomé
The workshop is part of a series of events of DESA/SD’s regular programme of technical cooperation to support the implementation of the FDES 2013 in member states. It follows the United Nations Statistical Commission’s endorsement in 2013 of the revised FDES 2013 as the framework for strengthening environment statistics programmes in countries.
The Commission also recognized the FDES 2013 as a useful tool in the context of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Post-2015 Development Agenda. The FDES 2013 is a multi-purpose conceptual and statistical framework which marks out the scope of environment statistics. It provides an organizing structure to guide the collection and compilation of environment statistics at the national level and is very relevant for policy analysis and decision making.
