The system of environmental - economic accounting for water (SEEA-W) is
one of efforts by international organizations to address the issue of the lack of
water related data; it provides a tool for policymakers to inform decisions in a
sustainable manner. In undertaking a pilot study of the Nhue - Day river basin,
this research demonstrates that the river basin approach is in accordance
with management institutions and available data, as well as being useful for
sustainable management of water, in Vietnam.

Introduction
Water accounting is a discipline
that seeks to provide comprehensive,
consistent and comparable policy-
relevant information related to water.
Based on the experience of more than fifty
years of compiling national accounts, the
discipline that provides the elements to
calculate gross domestic product (GDP),
the United Nations Statistics Division
(UNSD) developed the System of
Environmental - Economic Accounting
for Water (SEEA-W), adopted by the
United Nations Statistical Commission
(UNSC) as a statistical standard in
2012. SEEA-W can assist policymakers

system, which is capable of harmonizing
information from different sources, is
accepted by stakeholders and is used for
the derivation of indicators; (vii) Getting
stakeholders involved in decision-
making.
Currently, over 50 countries are
developing or plan to develop SEEA-W
[1]. The application of SEEA-W will
gradually improve the quality of data
and contribute to develop sustainable
water resources. In addition, the gained
results of the pilot study will point out
the deficiencies and limitations that need
to be improved.
Methodologies
The methodologies adopted in this
research were:
(i) Desk study to review, collect data
and related information, and search for
published data sources.
(ii) Systems analysis to describe
the relationship between economic and
household activities and other problems
related to water resources in the Nhue -
Day river basin.
