SEEA Progress in the six Eastern Partnership countries

Environmental accounting

One of the conclusions of the 1st regional project Steering Committee of the ENI SEIS East II meeting held in November 2016 is that the project should support capacity building in Environmental Accounting, all countries having identified this to be highly relevant and of priority. This need for the action has been taken into account and been added to the Regional work plan of the project 2017-2020.

The EEA Study of the effectiveness and relevance for policymaking and public information of recent environmental assessments in the ENI East region was conducted in 2017. This study identify way forward for environmental assessment reports using new methods and tools for environmental assessments. This includes environmental accounting, environmental modelling, GIS applications and scenarios analysis and forecasting. This is way forward to more analytical, dynamic, timely and knowledge based assessments.

In 2017, the EEA self-assessment on SEEA progress study was conducted to analyse the state of play and structuring capacity building. This assist to measure the readiness of countries (data availability, institutional and human capacity,) and identify area of work to start (see concept note on the environmental accounting for further detail). Key findings indicated that the SEEA is an emerging component, which is included in national statistical programmes led by NSOs. Priority areas for the SEEA include land accounts, air emission accounts, water accounts and environmental protection expenditure accounts.
