1 UNSD/UNEP data collection on waste DI Milla Neubauer, Qatar 19 June 2013 1 13

2 UNSD Environmental Indicators 2 Global environment statistics on ten indicator themes Selected based on the current demands for international environmental statistics and the availability of internationally comparable data Statistics on Waste are based on the responses to the biennial UNSD/UNEP Questionnaire on Environment Statistics, complemented with comparable statistics from OECD and Eurostat Waste Statistic Include: Hazardous waste generation, Municipal waste collection, Municipal waste treatment

3 Biennial Questionnaire on Environment Statistics 3 For the first time in 1999 Data collection on waste and water The sixth round took place in 2010 Data collection from all countries except those that are covered by the Joint OECD/Eurostat Questionnaire

4 UNSD/UNEP Questionnaire 2012 4 The seventh round of UNSD’s biennial environment statistics data collection There will be minor changes from the UNSD/UNEP Questionnaire 2010 Postponed to Sep/Oct of 2013 in order to ensure proper revisions, methodological harmonization and synchronized timing with the corresponding OECD/Eurostat Joint Questionnaire on the State of the Environment Will include a list of relevant definitions and comprehensive guidance to assist respondents with filling the tables

10 ISIC Rev.4 10 The sectoral breakdown of the data on waste generation follows the International Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities (ISIC Rev.4) Allows to link environmental pressure to economic activities

11 Definitions for waste 11 Waste: Materials that are not prime products (i.e., products produced for the market) for which the generator has no further use for his own purpose of production, transformation or consumption, and which he discards, or intends or is required to discard. Hazardous waste: Waste to be controlled according to the Basel Convention. Municipal waste: Municipal waste collected by or on behalf of municipalities, as well as municipal waste collected by the private sector. It includes mixed waste, and fractions collected separately for recovery operations

12 Definitions for treatment operations 12 Landfilling: Final placement of waste into or onto the land in a controlled or uncontrolled way. Recycling: Any reprocessing of waste material in a production process that diverts it from the waste stream, except reuse as fuel. Incineration: The controlled combustion of waste with or without energy recovery. Incineration with energy recovery: Incineration in which evolving thermal energy is used for the production of steam, hot water or electric energy. Composting: A biological process that submits biodegradable waste to anaerobic or aerobic decomposition, and that results in a product that is recovered and can be used to increase soil fertility.

13 Issues that need special attention 13 Secondary wastes: Should be excluded from waste generation In the statistics on waste management secondary wastes are double counted Internal recycling: Recycling within industrial plants i.e., at the place of generation should be excluded Materials directly recycled or reused at the place of generation are excluded from waste generation

14 Data validation 14 A data validation section is added next to each reporting table. Should help both the country and UNSD to validate the data provided Two validation table types: Time series validation: an automatic check on the percentage change from the previous year (where available) Coherence validation: check of coherence between variables within the questionnaire or compared to data from outside sources In case of validation alerts footnotes should be provided
