Accounting for the environment: Better data for a better future


With temperatures rising and natural disasters occurring more frequently, the climate crisis is on everyone's minds. Countries have come together in an effort to address climate change via international cooperation. However, the climate crisis is worsening. Calls for concrete policy action are deafening; but to generate world class policy advice, we need world class evidence. The OECD compiles and produces data to understand and monitor the environment in a way that is coherent with economic accounting. But what does this mean exactly? Why is it important to measure our environment and our environmental impacts? What is the data telling us? And how can these indicators help policymakers?

This OECD Podcast aims to address these questions and more in conversation with one of our own Environmental-Economic Accounting experts.
