Environment and Disaster statistics

The Agenda 2030 and accompanying Sustainable Development Goals have a strong environmental component and recognize the importance of properly managing environmental assets for the benefit of current and future generations in an equitable manner. Furthermore, the SDGs call for regular reporting of indicators on many environmental topics such as biodiversity, energy, ecosystem, oceans, land, sustainable consumption and production, water and waste. Officials in the NSOs and environment ministries achieve knowledge on environmentally related data, environment statistics, accounts and indicators, the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA), energy statistics and accounts, statistics related to climate change and disaster statistics, etc., including Framework for development of environment statistics (FDES), SEEA central framework and compilation of physical flow accounts, compilation of ocean accounts, SDG indicators related to environment and disaster, and indicators related to climate change.
