Inclusive Wealth PROJECT






To assess health as a measurement of human capital in inclusive wealth accounts.
To expand on constituents of natural capital by incorporating a broad array of credible databases.
To make the IWR2016 explicitly geared towards addressing the policy questions especially for national and regional decision makers.
To provide a learning tool on IW for students in economics and sustainability science.
Institutionalize IWR as for a measurements of sustainable development through creating political buying in.


Many agencies, including the World Bank, UNEP, OECD, and UN Statistical Division remain actively engaged in wealth accounting projects. While such projects may differ in their semantic label or main focus, the institutions overseeing them aim to meet constant international demands for data and information related to wealth accounting and developmental measurement. Among these undertakings, recent Inclusive Wealth Reports (IWR) have been well-received in countries throughout South America, Central America, Africa and Asia for their assessments of the three forms of capital inherent in the overall wealth of nations.
In order to make the IWR more expansive, the 2016 edition will further emphasize the linkages between scientific data and policies and highlight policy implications at local, national, and regional levels. To date, a lack of data availability among project contributors has been a considerable obstacle to creating a more comprehensive report. Throughout the construction of IWR 2016, priority will be placed on extending the outreach activities among project contributors to include greater numbers of organizational collaborators from around the world. IWR 2016 will thus be forged through ample, global, multilateral data sharing and operational collaboration.
