Closing Regional Workshop for UN Development Account Project in Africa
The Closing Regional Workshop for the United Nations Development Account Project is organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) in in collaboration with Kenya National Bureau of Statistics, UNECA, UN Environment and the World Bank. The project aims to enhance the capacity of National Statistical Offices of African countries in the implementation of the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA). In view of the objectives of the project, the closing workshop will provide an opportunity for Kenya and Uganda, the project countries, to share their experiences on drafting of national plans for the implementation of the SEEA and the compilation of pilot accounts. Participants from the region will also be invited to share their experience and discuss lessons learnt on the SEEA implementation as well as how to best communicate and disseminate the pilot accounts to the relevant stakeholders, ensure uptake in policy decision making and how to scale up the implementation of the SEEA.
The workshop will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, at the Sarova Stanley hotel from 11 to 13 December 2017 and is by invitation only.
