Este informe describe cómo la Plataforma Integrada de Modelado Ambiental Económico (IEEM) podría aplicarse a los nuevos usos de las cuentas ambientales de Colombia y los marcos analíticos que responden a cuestiones relacionadas con la política económica y ambiental y la toma de decisiones.
This brief describes how the Integrated Economic Environmental Modelling Platform (IEEM) could be applied toward new uses of Colombia’s environmental accounts and analytical frameworks that respond to questions related to economic and environmental policy and decision making.
With WAVES support, Colombia has produced water, land, and timber/forest accounts at the national level; ecosystem accounts at the regional level; and land, water, and expenditure accounts at the watershed level. These accounts make it possible to better assess the real value of natural capital to the economy.
Wealth Accounting and the Valuation of Ecosystem Services (WAVES) is a World Bank-led global partnership that aims to promote sustainable development by ensuring that natural resources are mainstreamed in development planning and national economic accounts.
