Natural Capital Accounting for Green Growth in the Middle East and North Africa
A regional workshop on Natural Capital Accounting for Green Growth in the Middle East and North Africa will be held on March 26-27, 2013 at the Villa Valmer, Center for Mediterranean Integration (CMI), Marseille, France. The two-day workshop will present the WAVES Partnership and the 50:50 campaign, discuss the rationale to better monitor and manage natural assets, and provide hands-on training sessions in environmental accounting, ecosystem valuation, and development policy. The workshop aims to establish a Mediterranean chapter of the WAVES Partnership (Wealth Accounting and the Valuation of Ecosystem Services).
Participants will attend from each of the CMI’s five partner countries: Morocco, Tunisia, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon, and include both high-level decision makers and staff from government institutions that are providers of data such as national statistical institutions, as well as users of data, such as development planning ministries or key line ministries such as water, energy, fisheries.
