Stats Cafe 14/2022

The Asia-Pacific Stats Café Series on "SEEA for Climate Change: Why and How?" was held on Monday, 13 June 2022 from 12.00-13.00 hours (UTC+7).

About the session

Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. And one of the important facets of climate change is its relationship to economic activities. Our production and consumption patterns, especially of energy, have resulted in increased emissions of greenhouse gases which in turn has exacerbated global warming. Improving our understanding of the climate change and economy nexus is key to adopting and mitigating the impacts of climate change.

The System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA) is the international statistical standard that contains the agreed methodology for measuring the relationship between the economy and the environment. Countries in Asia-Pacific are implementing the SEEA and disseminating statistics that inform climate change. During this Stats Café, colleagues from NSOs in India, Indonesia and New Zealand shared their experience in using SEEA accounts to compile information relevant to climate change.
