Regional Training Course on Climate Change-Related Statistics

[27 November - 1 December 2017 | Chiba, Japan ]
The objectives of the workshop

1. Participants understand basic concepts and frameworks on statistics related to climate change and are able to produce selected climate change-related indicators using their national data
2. Participants are able to assist colleagues, whether in their own countries or elsewhere, in the compilation of the indicators
3. ESCAP (SIAP and Statistics Division) gain experience on which they can build to develop a regular, though evolving, training programme on climate change-related statistics that would address the specific needs of the subregions of Asia and the Pacific, starting with the Pacific
4. The Conference of European Statisticians (CES) Task Force on a set of key climate change-related statistics using the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) is provided with input that is useful for the further development of its core set of indicators
