Overview
Energy data represents a basic input to all sectoral and national development plans, particularly in ESCWA member countries where energy sector has a vital role in the economic and social development. However, the quality of energy statistics in most of ESCWA countries still needs capacity building to meet the appropriate statistical requirements for formulating national development plans and international reporting. ESCWA member countries face several problems concerning the availability and overall quality of data on energy. Therefore, there is an urgent necessity to upgrade the capacity of national officials on compiling statistics on supply and use by all sectors on all energy sources as well as for harmonizing the definitions and classification and to produced yearly energy balance.

Objectives
The project aims to strengthen national statistical capacity in developing energy information system and energy statistics and balances in ESCWA member countries. Through training activities and sharing knowledge, the project will support member countries in adopting of corrective policies and programs and promoting the production of statistics and indicators on the energy in line with United Nations methodologies.

Kick off of the Joint Project of the Statistics Division with the Islamic Bank and DFID on Energy Consumption Surveys, October 2014
Energy consumption statistics is a unique data source for policy-makers, analysts and companies involved in the energy sector. A considerable gap still exists between the demand for information and the ability of most Arab countries to routinely supply reliable energy statistics, both in terms of the availability and the quality of data. The overall objective of this project is to strengthen the capacity of National Statistical Offices (NSOs) in developing energy information systems and energy statistics in order to assist governments in more effectively managing energy consumption in the region.
