The course, Introduction to Environmental Accounting, at Australian National University's Fenner School of Environment & Society, has been designed to assist with the implementation of WAVES as well as the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA). No specific prior knowledge necessary, but it is expected that participants have worked professionally within or with government in disciplines related to environmental accounting, including environmental science, ecological economics, natural resource management, national accounting or statistics.
The course draws on expertise from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, The Australian National University and other institutions. It covers the theoretical and practical fundamentals of environmental accounting and places this into an overall public policy framework. Examples are drawn from around the world, and information resources are discussed and explored in practical workshops. Participants will have the opportunity to share experiences and are invited to use their own data for shaping into accounts.
