This document focuses on African compendium of environment statistics. This is the first edition of the African Compendium of Environment Statistics. It is in many ways experimental and covers a limited range of topics but it is intended that future editions will cover a wider range of data and will include more comment and analysis. Environment statistics is a relatively new branch of statistics and very few African countries have yet started systematic data collection or have any statisticians trained in this branch.
