Planet health index

There is a high interest today in combining global environmental Earth System Science variables and socio-economic variables e.g. from statistics offices to try to understand how does the ecological health of the planet relates to “socio-economic health”. OEMC project plans to build a tool to analyse the impact of various economic activities on environmental degradation, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and ecosystem services; as well as the opposite: to measure the impact of ecosystem degradation on financial systems. This “Planet Health Index” tool will use the UN System of Environmental Economic Accounting as a basis for the analysis.


Further details about this use case will be available shortly.
