Fiji’s Experimental Environmental Account for Solid Waste (2013 to 2016)
The Experimental Environmental Account for Waste is the first stage of compilation to highlight and measure the inputs, generation and management (use) of waste as it flows to the environment, is taken for treatment, stored or is used within the economy of Fiji. The account is experimental given that it is based on information that is currently available and coverage will expand once other information of waste flow becomes available. The Fiji Bureau of Statistics, in collaboration with national stakeholders and international partners, has compiled a Waste Account using the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) central framework. The environmental account for waste is a framework that describes in detail the production, reuse, disposal and the various types of residuals generated by the different units in the economy. This release captures the physical flows of residuals from the economy to the environment and within the economy.
