International standards


SEEA Ecosystem Accounting: The SEEA Ecosystem Accounting (SEEA EA) constitutes an integrated and comprehensive statistical framework for organizing data about habitats and landscapes, measuring the ecosystem services, tracking changes in ecosystem assets, and linking this information to economic and other human activity.

SEEA-Central framework:  The SEEA Central Framework is an international statistical standard for measuring the environment and its relationship with the economy. The Central Framework covers measurement in three main areas: (i) environmental flows; (ii) stocks of environmental assets; and (iii) economic activity related to the environment.

SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting: While the SEEA Central Framework offers insight into individual environmental assets, the SEEA Experimental Ecosystem Accounting, takes the perspective of ecosystems and considers how individual environmental assets interact as part of natural processes within a given spatial area.

SEEA- Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries integrates information on the environment and economic activities of agriculture, forestry and fisheries using the structures and principles laid out in the SEEA Central Framework.

How Natural Capital Accounting Contributes to Integrated Policies for Sustainability:  This publication provides an accessible overview to NCA, the SEEA and how the SEEA uses a systems approach to create effective policies at the environment-economy nexus.
