Environmental-Economic Accounting in Support of Evidence-based Policies for Land Use and Management
This webinar is part of the UN Development Account Project, Environmental-Economic Accounting for Evidence-Based Policy in Africa and Asia. This webinar introduces the SEEA and land accounting to stakeholders in the project's Asia Pacific partner countries, Malaysia and the Philippines. The webinar will introduce the conceptual framework of the SEEA, how land accounts are compiled and the policy applications of land accounts. The webinar will also include country experiences in compiling land accounts and how land accounts can be used for monitoring the SDGs, post-2020 global biodiversity framework and more.
UNSD is collaborating with the Statistics Division of the Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), Department of Statistics Malaysia (DOSM) and the Philippine Statistical Authority (PSA) in implementing the project in Asia. This webinar is geared towards national stakeholders in Malaysia and the Philippines, including line ministries, mapping agencies, NGOs and academia. The implementation of the SEEA is truly a multi-stakeholder approach and requires cooperation of many national partners and agencies.
