The Compendium of Environment Statistics in the ESCWA Region seeks to set a framework for compiling environment statistics for the ESCWA region undertaken by ESCWA in close collaboration with the United Nations Statistics Division and the United Nations Environment Programme and aims at strengthening the capacity of member countries. Following a framework of environment indicators, it compiles existing environmental data, calculates indicators related to the environment, addresses gaps in data and priority issues, and builds on information to increase coverage in the data collection process. This Compendium is mainly intended to assist people in the fields of statistics, environment and policymaking to develop a system for collecting environment statistics.
