System of Environmental Economic Accounting 2015-2018 Water Accounts Report
The Uganda Bureau of Statistics with support from United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), has compiled the 2015-2018 pilot System of Environmental-Economic Accounts for Water (SEEA-Water accounts) based on the water resource management structure and the UN SEEA- Water Accounts. This work is part of the priority activities as spelt out in the National Plan for Advancing Environment Economic Accounting (NP-AEEA). Compilation of SEEA-Water Accounts is key given the important role water plays in the production and consumption process of all activities. Thus, effective utilisation of the available water resources triggers increased productivity across all sectors and enhances economic growth as well as other development outcomes. It is against this background that Uganda took the initiative to implement the water resource accounts development.
