hlpf 1


The Committee of Experts on Public Administration (CEPA) and Committee of Experts on Environmental Economic Accounting organized this side event, held on 12 July 2022, on the occasion of the high-level political forum. The event examined how natural capital accounting (NCA) can help to measure and track climate change and biodiversity, thus providing all institutions with a “common denominator” in the effort to address climate change and biodiversity.  

It focused on NCA according to the international statistical standard, the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA). The event showed how using the tools and measures developed from the SEEA and recommended by CEPA as a basis for building the capacity of the public sector in natural capital accounting to promote better partnerships and inter-institutional collaboration and help provide the kind of integrated data needed to build back greener from the pandemic, in support of Agenda 2030, the post-2020 global biodiversity framework and the Paris Agreement.
