Improving capacity to implement experimental ecosystem accounting

CUBAA Regional Training Workshop will be organized in Santiago on the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting in Latin America and the Caribbean on 13-16 April.

Representatives from National Statistical Offices, Ministries of Environment and/or other line ministries dealing with forests, biodiversity or other environment-related issues, that have or plan to have programmes on the implementation of the SEEA in countries from Latin America and the Caribbean will meet in Santiago to attend the regional training workshop on the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting.

Participants from some other pilot countries involved in the project “Advancing the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting in pilot countries”, as well as staff from ECLAC and other international agencies will also attend.

The objective of the workshop is to improve the capacity of participants in the implementation of the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting. The workshop aims (i) to help participants acquire knowledge and skills to deepen their understanding of the accounting principles and basic data needs for SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting; (ii) to facilitate experience sharing among countries in Latin America and the Caribbean; and (iii) to support countries to set up a strategy and work plan for the implementation of the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting.

The workshop is organized by UN DESA’s Statistics Division as part of the project on “Advancing the SEEA in Pilot Countries” and will be hosted at ECLAC.
