Task Force on a Set of Core Climate Change-Related Statistics

Contact person: Mr. Michael Nagy


The main objective of the Task Force will be to refine the initial set of core climate change-related indicators based on the outcomes of the pilot testing, and taking into consideration comments received during the electronic consultation with CES member States (carried out in February – March 2017). The Task Force will also develop a set of operational and contextual indicators to accompany the recommended set of core indicators.
As far as possible, the Task Force will identify methodologies for tier III indicators. This work will take into account developments related to the operationalization of indicators to monitor the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the Sendai Framework on Disaster Risk Reduction (Sendai Framework), and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (Paris Agreement). Experiences of individual countries will also be considered if internationally agreed methodologies are not yet available.

The Task Force will develop guidelines for the implementation of the refined set of indicators and contribute to the development of a global set of climate change statistics and indicators.
