Our experts Georgy Fomenko, Doctor of Science, Professor, Marina Fomenko, PhD, Associate Professor, took part in ROSSTAT/UNECE/UNEP/OECD Joint Workshop on environment-related SDG Indicators. It was aimed to monitor progress in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals

It gathered together experts from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE), the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and representatives of Rosstat, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia, environmental protection agencies (Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, Rosvodresursy, Roshydromet), Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, Analytical Center under the Government of the Russian Federation, as well as the scientific community and non-governmental organizations. The seminar was attended by the leading experts Georgy Fomenko, Doctor of Science in Geography, Professor, and Marina Fomenko, PhD in Geography, Associate Professor.

The goal of this workshop was to increase the national capacity to generate high-quality statistics and indicators to monitor progress towards achieving the environmental dimension of the SDGs, since the environmental statistics capacity needs to be strengthened and improved. It is also necessary to promote the harmonization of national methodological approaches to the building of environmental indicators with international methodologies and metadata of the SDGs-related organizations and other relevant international organizations.

The workshop was also aimed at improving the understanding of environmental information systems in the Russian Federation by environmental organizations, as well as increasing statistical capacity in data production to monitor progress in achieving environmental indicators of the SDGs.

The result of this work will be an increase in the number of environmental indicators being developed on the basis of international recommendations, which will be further used in assessment of Russia’s achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. Increasing the availability and quality of statistical data to measure the environmental dimension of achieving the SDGs will be important for reasonable decision-making, as well as for defining SDGs-related policy. The availability of high-quality data will allow increasing control over the implementation of environment-related goals and objectives of the 2030 Agenda.
