Existing classification systems, registers, definitions, statistical frameworks, products and services need to be reviewed to see that needs related to climate change analysis are appropriately addressed

Existing classification systems, registers, definitions, statistical frameworks, products and services need to be reviewed to see that needs related to climate change analysis are appropriately addressed. Furthermore, the legislative environment for producing climate change-related statistics and supporting the compilation of GHG inventories may need to be assessed. The following issues and actions may be considered by NSOs:

  • Give consideration in future revisions of international statistical standards and classifications to the data needs of climate change analysis 

  • Identify and address the obstacles to linking statistics across domains 

  • Consider new approaches to preserving confidentiality 

  • Consider the inclusion of explicit references to environmental statistics, including climate change-related statistics, in statistical laws
