Learning Centre on

SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting

11:00 am - 1:00 pm
25 February 2013, Monday
Venue: Conference room A (TNLB)
United Nations, New York

How can countries begin to account for ecosystem services and assets and their relationship to human and economic activity? The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) Experimental Ecosystem Accounting has been designed to provide a statistical framework for organizing biophysical data, measuring ecosystem services, tracking changes in ecosystem assets, and linking this information to economic and other human activity. This Learning Centre will provide an opportunity for Chief Statisticians and statistical managers to develop a deeper understanding of the concepts and methods of the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting. Presentations by selected countries will provide attendees with an awareness of plans, strategies, and practical experience in the area of ecosystem accounting.
