1 ISEE2008 – Nairobi /08/2008Jean-Louis Weber - EEA UNEP roundtable on Inclusive Wealth EEA contribution on IW accounting

2 ISEE2008 – Nairobi /08/2008Jean-Louis Weber - EEA Ecosystem accounting at the EEA European Environmental Agency: not research but support to policy making with data, knowledge and assessments => data collection, management and dissemination, => reference data & indicators [5 data centres, data service], for ALL EU countries, comparable, timely, responding the EU policy agenda => cooperation with research organisations and scientific programmes => analysis, modelling, highlight of consequneces fo choices, assessments, valuation SEIS [shared environmental information system] shared between European institutions, between EC and member countries shared between managers and researchers

3 ISEE2008 – Nairobi /08/2008Jean-Louis Weber - EEA Ecosystem accounting & Inclusive Wealth Inclusive Wealth accounting: full integrated model of economy/environment/society, empirical evidences at the site and/or service level but complex issues for implementation at the macro scale [aggregation of site based information, aggregation of multiple services, resilence & uncertainty...] => Long Term perspective Need to find an interim solution for the Short Term EEA proposal to SEEA revision, Beyond GDP, TEEB... is to start with a dual integration of statistical accounts integration with the SNA [current accounts of the economic system]: mostly done by SEEA2003 integration with ecosystem accounts to be developped during SEEA2012 revision technical integration of both sub-systems [classifications, balances]

4 ISEE2008 – Nairobi /08/2008Jean-Louis Weber - EEA Purpose of ecosystem accounting Highlight/quantify non market values, ecosystem impacts [beyond pressures] and feedbacks to the economy First set of aggregates: ecosystem capital potential of delivering services over time [capacity to continue functioning]: abundance, integrity, health, resilience..., state and change, in physical units only at this stage consumption of ecosystem capital potential [amortization => tansfer in K to the next period, virtual debt]: physical gap to target and restoration costs consumption of ecosystem capital potential concealed in import/exports [virtual flows, concealed transfer in K between countries] ignored final consumption of non-market ES => inclusive final consumption

5 ISEE2008 – Nairobi /08/2008Jean-Louis Weber - EEA Anciliary remarks Implementation requires coordinating the various approaches Data/information: need correct articulation between policy needs and ecological eoconomic research [resilience assessment, econometric valuation, scenario/modelling...] classifications, detail, timeliness, access Scales/governance levels: specific requirements at action/ government/ global levels... and micro-macro [or macro-micro] integration [aggregation/disaggregation, stratification, sampling, modelling] – 1 km2 grid as a useful tool for data assimilation Symetric approach of ecosystem services: 1 by 1, starting from specific [important] ES with the risk of neglecting the difficult ones [regulation, non-use...] holistic observation/assessement of the sustainable functioning of the ecosystem natural capital
