the HOW TO of Environmental-Economic Accounting

The need for IDEEA Group services

From primary producers to national governments, IDEEA Group clients are faced with the same basic challenges for adopting Environmental-Economic Accounting (EEA) as an integral aspect of decision making. Our services help clients to address these challenges:

Understand EEA principles and practices

IDEEA Group supports organisations to develop awareness and increase understanding around EEA issues and opportunities. These services include running seminars and workshops, publishing papers, and facilitating networking events.

Integrate local ecosystem data into EEA aligned metrics

IDEEA Group  assists organisations to develop standard EEA data collection, reporting and analysis tools. These services involve reviews and assessments of existing systems, operational definition of EEA metrics based on available data, and description of additional inputs required to fill gaps.

Implement reporting in line with SEEA standards

IDEEA Group helps organisations to establish protocols and frameworks to apply the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA) to their context-specific reporting needs. These services involve consulting and operational design of reporting systems and protocols.

Integrate EEA metrics into decision making protocols

IDEEA Group supports a growing number of organisations to develop the internal skills-sets needed to implement and apply EEA as a decision making support tool. These services include workshops, training courses, and professional development webinars.
