Valuing Australia's environment course

For the first time, the ABS training course, “Valuing Australia’s Environment”, is open to participants from outside the ABS.

Running on 4 July 2008, the one-day course focuses on the emerging discipline of environmental accounting which strives to organise environmental statistics in a consistent and structured system and within a framework that allows integration of economic and environmental information.

The course would be of interest to anyone requiring an overview of environmental statistics and their use; anyone who is new to environment and natural resource statistics; and/or anyone working in the field of environmental accounting or national accounts.

The course will help participants understand the:
• frameworks that underpin environmental accounting
• various types of environmental accounts and what they measure
• relative benefits of environmental accounting
• ABS experience in compiling environmental accounts
• users and uses of environmental accounts.

To express your interest in attending, or for further information, please contact Peter Comisari on (02) 6252 5381 or email: peter.comisari@abs.gov.au.
