Overview on production and sharing of 8 selected indicators by

Report
Overview on production and sharing
of 8 selected indicators by Central
Asian countries
MONECA Regional Coordination
Meeting, 10 June 2014, Almaty,
Kazakhstan
UNECE environmental indicators
42 indicators:
- 3 air pollution and
ozone depletion
- 3 climate change
- 16 water
- 4 biodiversity
- 2 land and soil
- 2 agriculture
- 4 energy
- 4 transport
- 4 waste
• For each indicator:
– description file with
definitions, data
structure, collection
methods, etc.,
– excel production table,
and
– glossary

Current focus of work: production and
sharing of 8 indicators
• 8 indicators:
– 3 air pollution and ozone
depletion
– 1 climate change
– 2 water
– 1 land and soil
– 1 waste
(A1) Emission of pollutants into
atmospheric air
(A2) Ambient air quality in urban
areas
(A3) Ozone depleting substances
(B3) Greenhouse gas (GHG)
emissions
(C10) BOD5 and concentration of
ammonium in rivers
(C11) Nutrients in freshwater
(D1) Protected areas (without
regimes of protection)
(I1) Waste generation

Countries should gradually take steps to include data on NMVOCs, NH3, CO, CH, PM10, PM2.5, TSP, POPs and heavy metals in the
production of this indicator
Indicator should be fully
produced

targets, and a brief interpretation
Information on limitations of methodology,
data validation, and metadata

Table 2: Actions to be taken by countries to implement the recommendations for the online
sharing of core indicators
A workshop on limitations of
methodologies and data validation will be
organized to assist the countries to initiate
the implementation of this
recommendation
