New York
21 - 23 May, 2019

The Sixth Meeting of the Expert Group on Environment Statistics (EGES), organized by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), will be held in New York from 21 to 23 May 2019. The meeting will be attended by approximately 35 experts in environment statistics from countries as well as regional and international organizations.

The Statistical Commission at its forty-fourth session in 2013 endorsed the revised Framework for the Development of Environment Statistics (FDES 2013) (https://unstats.un.org/unsd/envstats/fdes.cshtml) as the framework for strengthening environment statistics programmes in countries and requested UNSD to convene a standing Expert Group on Environment Statistics to collaborate with and assist UNSD in future methodological work and other aspects of the application of the revised Framework in countries.

The sixth meeting will discuss, inter alia: (i) the draft methodology sheets of the Manual for the Basic Set of Environment Statistics; (ii) the implementation of the FDES 2013 and the reporting template to summarize the results of the Environment Statistics Self-Assessment Tool (ESSAT); (iii) environmentally-related Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) indicators; (iv) the regular biennial data collection in water and waste statistics via the UNSD/UNEP Questionnaire on Environment Statistics, including e-waste statistics; (v) climate change statistics and indicators; and (vi) capacity development.
