The System of Environmental-Economic Accounting 2012 - Applications and Extensions (SEEA Applications and Extensions) provides potential compilers and users of SEEA based environmental-economic accounts with material to show how this information can be used in decision-making, policy review and formulation, analysis and research. The SEEA Applications and Extensions provides a bridge between compilers and analysts allowing each to recognise both the potential uses and the related measurement considerations. It is a companion document to the SEEA Central Framework which was adopted as the initial international statistical standard for environmental - economic accounting in 2012.



Extensions of the SEEA

The focus of the present chapter is the potential of the accounts of the SEEA Central Framework to be extended and integrated with other information. Connecting SEEA accounts to a range of existing information sources can facilitate a better understanding of multifaceted issues, such as sustainable development. This chapter recognizes that appropriate responses to environmental pressures will usually rely on an understanding of the connections among the environment, the economy and individuals. In this context, while the SEEA accounts do not provide a complete information set, they can provide an important part of the information required. Generally, the SEEA is a framework that supports and encourages the integration of data.
