Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Climate Change-related Statistics 2022

Expert Forum for Producers and Users of Climate Change-related Statistics 2022

29 - 30 September 2022

The UNECE Expert Fora for Producers and Users of Climate Change-Related Statistics have been organized annually since 2014 to serve as a platform for collaboration, sharing ideas and experience, discussing concepts and measurement issues, and identifying areas for development of practical guidance.

globe and hands

The Expert Fora provide a link between producers and users of climate information and support implementation of the CES Recommendations on Climate Change-Related Statistics (2014) and the CES Set of Core Climate Change-related Indicators and Statistics Using the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (2020).

The 2022 UNECE Expert Forum is planned to take place from 29 to 30 September in Geneva. A remote connection and simultaneous interpretation in English, French and Russian will be provided.

Documents from previous editions of the Expert Fora can be found on the web pages of past meetings. To access the meeting documents and presentations, please click on the session title below.

Session 2: Progress and challenges in measuring climate change vulnerability and adaptation

Session organizers: Giovanna Tagliacozzo (ISTAT) and MChristiana Photiadou (European Environment Agency)

This session will follow up on the related sessions at the 2020 and 2021 Expert Fora. The presentations and conclusions from the previous meetings are available on the meeting websites in English and Russian: 2020 Expert Forum and 2021 Expert Forum.

Understanding climate change vulnerability and resilience, and planning adaptation to climate change is an increasingly important component of climate change response. However, their measurement still poses significant challenges. Vulnerability, exposure, risk appetite and adaptation actions vary between and within countries and regions and over time, and are interconnected. The information needs are highly context-specific, and it seems impossible to define a fully harmonized, internationally agreed set of statistics and indicators.

In August 2020, the Steering Group on Climate Change-Related Statistics conducted a survey to determine what NSOs do in this area. Many countries reported that they undertake some statistical activities related to climate change adaptation, such as producing statistics, linking and disseminating data from other producers or supporting monitoring of national adaptation plans. The Expert Fora concluded that further work should include sharing best practices, starting with available relevant indicators, analysing interlinkages, clustering relevant thematic areas and creating taxonomies.

The session will:

  • Share and discuss practical examples of climate change adaptation, vulnerability and resilience statistics and indicators used in countries.
  • Share experience of other activities related to providing data on climate change adaptation, vulnerability and resilience, i.e., a presentation, paper and/or case study on, e.g., linking and disseminating data from other producers, supporting monitoring of national adaptation plans, providing data for risk maps, including nature-based solution strategies.
  • Share knowledge and good practices of statistical, policy and research communities working on climate change adaptation, vulnerability, resilience, and hazardous events and disasters.
  • Discuss what is needed to accelerate progress in this area, e.g., by identifying the highest priority activities and better coordinating each other’s efforts.

In August 2020, the Steering Group on Climate Change-Related Statistics conducted a survey to determine what NSOs do in this area. Many countries reported that they undertake some statistical activities related to climate change adaptation, such as producing statistics, linking and disseminating data from other producers or supporting monitoring of national adaptation plans. The Expert Fora concluded that further work should include sharing best practices, starting with available relevant indicators, analysing interlinkages, clustering relevant thematic areas and creating taxonomies.

The session will:

  • Share and discuss practical examples of climate change adaptation, vulnerability and resilience statistics and indicators used in countries.
  • Share experience of other activities related to providing data on climate change adaptation, vulnerability and resilience, i.e., a presentation, paper and/or case study on, e.g., linking and disseminating data from other producers, supporting monitoring of national adaptation plans, providing data for risk maps, including nature-based solution strategies.
  • Share knowledge and good practices of statistical, policy and research communities working on climate change adaptation, vulnerability, resilience, and hazardous events and disasters.
  • Discuss what is needed to accelerate progress in this area, e.g., by identifying the highest priority activities and better coordinating each other’s efforts.

This session will follow up on the related sessions at the 2020 and 2021 Expert Fora. The presentations and conclusions from the previous meetings are available on the meeting websites in English and Russian: 2020 Expert Forum and 2021 Expert Forum.

Understanding climate change vulnerability and resilience, and planning adaptation to climate change is an increasingly important component of climate change response. However, their measurement still poses significant challenges. Vulnerability, exposure, risk appetite and adaptation actions vary between and within countries and regions and over time, and are interconnected. The information needs are highly context-specific, and it seems impossible to define a fully harmonized, internationally agreed set of statistics and indicators.
