Regional Training Workshop on the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting for Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean
The Regional Training Workshop on the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting for Countries of Latin America and the Caribbean is jointly organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) and the Brazilian Institute for Geography and Statistics (IBGE), in collaboration with the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), the United Nations Environment Programme (UN Environment), and the European Union.
The Training Workshop will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 21 to 23 November 2018. It is organized as part of the project “Natural Capital Accounting and Valuation of Ecosystem Services” funded by the European Union, and implemented by UNSD, UN Environment and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD).
The Training Workshop constitutes the second phase of the regional training program, which builds upon the online phase of the training started in mid-September. The in-person phase will provide a unique opportunity for participants who have already acquired an understanding of basic SEEA EEA concepts to improve their knowledge through practical exercises and discussions on implementation issues.
