3 The idea of environmental- economic accounting –Merge economic and environmental statistics in one common framework –Focus on environmental-economic interactions –Satellite accounting approach: SNA as point of departure for concepts, definitions and classifications –Coherent statistical information system for strategic and policy analysis and indicator construction

4 History SEEA –1993 SEEA (interim version) Released together with the SNA 1993 Key focus on adjusted national income –2003 SEEA book of best practices complemented by various implementation guides (in the area of resource accounting) –2012 SEEA statistical standard (like the SNA): - No multiple options - No country applications

5 Content and Structure new SEEA Volume 1 – Standardized accounts a) Physical flow accounts –SU tables for materials (kg), energy (j) and water (m3) –Resource inputs, product flows, residual outputs –Covers emissions and waste accounts –Hybrid accounts (NAMEAs)

6 Content and Structure new SEEA Volume 1 – Standardized accounts b) Natural resource asset accounts –SNA type assets (minerals, land, water, forests, fish) –Economic ownership and benefits –Asset accounts (in quantities and money) –Depletion adjusted current accounts

9 Key issues, some highlights Volume 1 (21 revision items) Classification of material flows –Bridging resident versus territory principle –Reconciling existing energy and waste classifications –MFA and SNA boundaries –Waste, products and residuals –Net material/energy/water use Environment related transactions –Taxes, subsidies –Permits –Environmental industry

10 Key issues, continued Environmental assets –Economic (SNA) assets and beyond –Ownership, Benefits – Renewable energy resources –Classification Natural resource depletion –Depletion adjusted balancing items –Renewables and non-renewables –Soil and land

11 SEEA revision governance structure (similar to SNA model) –Responsible body is UNCEEA –LG proposed research agenda and formulates recommendations for each issue –LG discusses issue papers and submit recommendations to the UNCEEA –International consultation of proposed recommendations –Editor drafts new SEEA chapters –International consultation of SEEA chapters
