About Tools

ESCAP and its partners have developed, adapted and applied many tools in its program to strengthen environment statistics for addressing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Environment statistics are multidisciplinary and therefore are best developed in collaboration with relevant national and regional stakeholders. These tools include a Diagnostic Tool, and Inventory Template and several self-learning materials.

Diagnostic Tool

ESCAP and its partners have developed, adapted and applied many tools in its program to strengthen environment statistics for addressing the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Environment statistics are multidisciplinary and therefore are best developed in collaboration with relevant national and regional stakeholders. These tools include a Diagnostic Tool, and Inventory Template and several training modules.

Inventory Template

The inventory Template provides a structure for systematically describing statistical activities related to the environment. It does so by listing key elements to be described. It is intended to support inventorying environment statistics at the national and sub-national level.

Self-learning Materials

A note to the user:

The materials are in progress and are subject to change. They are necessarily simplifications of the materials in the guidance documents, which should be the main reference for producing statistics and accounts.

Disclaimer:

These materials are free for you to use, adapt and translate. If you do adapt them, please acknowledge ESCAP. They were produced in collaboration with many partners, who are acknowledged in the documents. They have benefitted from testing and feedback from many workshop participants.

Please contact us (stat.unescap@un.org) if you have viewed the presentations. We would be interested in hearing your views on how we could improve the materials.
