This is a report on the pilot compilation of the national Waste Accounts (2018-2019) focusing on waste generation and management within the Maldives. The Waste Accounts was prepared based on the System of Environmental-Economic Accounts (SEEA) methodology. Waste producers are classified according to the main economic industries most relevant to the Maldives. Waste categories and management methods were derived based on national policies and legislation as well as published reports and existing waste management practices in the Maldives. This technical assistance (TA) project was implemented by the National Bureau of Statistics of Maldives in cooperation with UNESCAP under the Strengthening statistical capacity of member states to address data availability challenges for environment-related SDGs under the Regular Programme of Technical Cooperation (RPTC).
