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.



SEEA and the Sustainable Development Goals

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015. The goals and targets cut across many economic, social and environmental issues. One key component of the SDGs is the measurement of progress towards meeting the various goals and targets through relevant indicators. As illustrated in the table below, the SEEA can be a useful tool to providing the necessary information or context for measuring progress on the SDGs. Note that the list below is non-exhaustive and is provided for illustrative purposes.
