Peacekeeping- UNMITA Forum of Experts in the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting will be held on 28-30 April at UN Headquarters in New York.

The Forum will bring together experts, practitioners and statisticians to discuss the draft guidance document that have been developed as part of the project to complement the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting. The guidance document will provide practical guidance for countries wanting to start testing the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting.
