Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Climate Change-Related Statistics
The UNECE Steering Group on Climate Change-Related Statistics (SGCC) is organizing the Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Climate Change-Related Statistics in Geneva on 2-4 October 2018. The Expert Forum will take place in the Palais des Nations. Previous Expert Fora for Producers and Users of Climate Change-Related Statistics were held in October 2017, October 2016 and September 2015.
The meeting will discuss how to develop official statistics to respond to the data reporting requirements arising from global agreements, including the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) relating to climate change. The Expert Forum follows up on the Conference of European Statisticians’ Recommendations on Climate Change-Related Statistics (http://www.unece.org/index.php?id=37166), which more than 60 countries and international organizations endorsed in April 2014. Among other things, the 2018 Forum will review the progress of the Task Force on an Initial Set of Climate Change-Related Indicators which proposes an internationally comparable set of key climate change-related statistics and indicators that can be derived from SEEA and other statistical frameworks.
The event will be open for all countries and organizations producing or using climate change related data. More information can be found on the UNECE website here.
