This site contains links to the activities and tools ESCAP has used to strengthen environment statistics in Asia and the Pacific. It also contains a collection of outputs from these activities. One of the purposes of the self-learning materials is to provide background to reading the guidance documents. Another purpose is to provide insights into policy applications and data sources.
The Asia Pacific Energy Portal is one aspect of ESCAP’s support to regional member States under the Asian and Pacific Energy Forum (APEF). With the generous support of the Russian Federation, the portal has been designed to serve as an informational foundation, helping to meet that mandate and support ESCAP’s ongoing energy-related activities. The portal was launched at the 71st Commission Session in May 2015 and continues to develop with new features and content.
