Asia and the Pacific Regional Expert Workshop on Ocean Accounts (2018)
Original (non-English) name
Vital information to monitor and evaluate progress towards SDG 14 is available, but it is fragmented across scientific domains, policy frameworks and institutions. ESCAP and UN Environment are leading a global effort to develop statistical guidance based on the System of Environmental Economic Accounting (SEEA). This requires a conversation among scientists, policy makers and statisticians and to this end, ESCAP invited national and international experts for the first Asia and the Pacific Regional Expert Workshop on Ocean Accounts in Bangkok on 1-3 August 2018.
The workshop provided guidance for testing in national pilot studies, including reviews of governance gaps and good practices.
