Strategies towards environmental economics and statistics (UN Photo/Sean-Sprague)The United Nations Committee of Experts on Environmental-Economic Accounting (UNCEEA) is composed of representatives from national statistical offices and international agencies, and provides strategic vision and direction to environmental-economic accounting and related statistics.

The Eighth UNCEEA meeting will discuss proposals leading to a medium-term programme of work for the UNCEEA, which would envisage two main streams of work: one focusing on the implementation of the SEEA Central Framework and the process to advance its research agenda; the second focusing on the testing and experimentation of the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting and advancing the related research agenda.

The meeting will also discuss the role of the UNCEEA in the process of the post-2015 development agenda, the SEEA communication strategy, emerging issues related to the SEEA, and be informed on the international initiatives on indicators and progress made in SEEA Agriculture and environment statistics.
