National Mission (Bilateral Consultations and Workshop) on Strengthening Environment Statistics for Improved Monitoring of Sustainable Development in Burundi

Bujumbura, Burundi
20 - 24 March, 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 a national mission to Bujumbura, Burundi from 20 to 24 March 2017. The mission is 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.

The mission will comprise two activities, bilateral consultations with the National Statistical Offices (NSOs) and a national workshop 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 workshop 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 workshop. A draft national work plan will also be discussed during the workshop.
