Monitoring Framework for Water

The System of Environmental-Economic Accounts for Water (SEEA-Water) and the International Recommendations for Water Statistics (IRWS)

August 2011, WWAP and UNSD

The UN World Water Development Report (WWDR) series has reiterated the fact that data and information  on water resources are incomplete or lacking altogether for some countries. It is against this backdrop that the UN World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP) reached out to the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) to produce this briefing note together and provide a better understanding of international methodological standards for water which have been developed by the international statistical community. This briefing note will help water professionals step outside the ‘water box’ and take into account broader social, political and economic issues affecting the use and allocation of water resources.
