UN DESAĺs Statistics Division is organizing the second regional workshop within the UN Development Account project ôSupporting Developing Countries Measure Progress Towards Achieving a Green Economyö in cooperation with the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC). The workshop will take place in Lima, Peru on 21-24 April 2015, and is co-organized by the statistical office of Peru - INEI. This workshop will primarily be a technical workshop that covers topics identified as needing attention and guidance in the first part of the project.

Recognizing the importance of high quality statistics and their effective use in promoting evidence-based socio-economic policies and achieving internationally agreed goals, the project aims to enhance the national statistical systemsĺ capacity of its pilot countries to produce good quality, timely and reliable statistics and indicators to inform about progress towards achieving a green economy in the context of sustainable development.

Key elements of the workshop will cover four main statistical domains, namely environment, agriculture, energy statistics, and statistics on new themes related to green economy (e.g. environmental goods and services, green jobs). The contents of each of the fields cover the following: general introduction to the theme; main frameworks and international recommendations covering these fields; internationally agreed definitions and metadata for selected statistics underlying green economy indicators; and detailed description and compilation methods for selected indicators from the reference green economy indicators list of the project. The workshop will also finalize the discussion on the direct technical assistance to the pilot countries that will take place in the months following this workshop.
