Climate Change-Related Statistics in the Arab Region: A Proposed Set of Indicators

January 2017

Climate Change-Related Statistics in the Arab Region: A Proposed Set of Indicators
Special Issue of the Compendium of Environment Statistics in the Arab Region 2017

Climate change and its impacts represent a major challenge to sustainable development in Arab countries. Reliable statistics are crucial for measuring and monitoring the economic and social impacts of climate change at the national and regional levels. In this special issue of the publication entitled “Compendium of Environment Statistics in the Arab Region”, ESCWA presents the potential role of national statistical offices in leading and coordinating climate change statistics.

With a view to improving climate change-related statistics collected by national statistical offices in the Arab region, the present report proposes a set of climate change-related indicators for Arab countries. The set of indicators is relevant to the region, uncumbersome to compile, feasible given existing data and methods, and consistent with international recommendations in this area.
