National Missions on Strengthening Environment Statistics for Improved Monitoring of Sustainable Development

Rwanda and Tanzania
16 - 27 January, 2017

As part of the Development Account Project on Supporting Member States in developing and strengthening environment statistics and integrated environmental-economic accounting for improved monitoring of sustainable development, the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) will organize two national missions in January in Rwanda (Kigali, 16 to 20 January 2017) and Tanzania (Dar es Salaam, 23 to 27 January 2017). These missions are being organized following the Workshop on Environment Statistics in support of the implementation of the Framework for the Development of Environment Statistics (FDES 2013) for the five member states of the East African Community (EAC) region that took place in Arusha, Tanzania in July 2015.

Both missions will comprise two activities, bilateral consultations with the National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and national workshops on environment statistics. The aim of the bilateral discussions is to engage in detailed discussions with the counterparts in the NSOs about the main issues regarding environment statistics in the country, have a better understanding of the main data gaps, and examine the way forward and identify steps to be taken to finalize the work plan and fill data gaps. The main goal of the national workshops is to bring the stakeholders together to increase awareness of the need for environment statistics in the country. For this purpose the FDES 2013 and the Environment Statistics Self-Assessment Tool (ESSAT) will be used extensively in the workshops. Draft national work plans will also be discussed during the workshops.
