20-22 October 2010
The International Association for
Official Statistics (IAOS) and the National Statistics Institute (INE)
of Chile are pleased to welcome you to
the IAOS Conference on official statistics and the environment: approaches, issues, challenges and linkages
October 20, 21 and 22 - 2010 Santiago, Chile
As ever more countries focus on understanding the factors that affect the environment and seek ways to protect it, they are realizing that a broad range of economic and social activities matter, and more importantly, that the effects of those activities with the environment are intertwined. Also, greater consideration is being given to the issue of the measurement of sustainability, with environmental issues as an important component.
For the statistical community in general and for National Statistics Offices (NSOs) in particular, a first step is to provide the foundation for informed policy decisions by collecting data and releasing statistical products for each environmental area separately. Integrating information from different sources, and perhaps from different countries, is also essential, because of the interdependent effects on the environment from government policies and from the economic and social activities of households, firms, and governments.
The theme of the 2010 IAOS Conference focuses on the environment in the broad sense.
