The Environmental-Economic Water Accountings for Water - CEEA compiles and provides statistics and indicators that give support to research and public policies on water resources, especially with data used for the building of indicators of the 6th Sustainable Development Goal -SDG, which aims at ensuring availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all.

The Environmental-Economic Water Accountings fro Water - CEEA were first released in 2018, with information for the total of Brazil with reference to the 2013-2015 period. The second release, in 2020, had its time span expanded, covering the period from 2013 to 2107, with information for Brazil and Major Regions. The CEEA follow the methodology of the manual System of environmental-economic accounting for water, SEEA-Water, written and published by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD). The study has made it possible to systematically and periodically assess key indicators involving the integration of physical and monetary data on water. Moreover, they allow society to account for and monitor economic agents' withdrawals, supply, use and return of water

The CEEA studies are organized into four groups of tables: Stock Tables, Physical Supply and Use Tables - Physical SUT, Hybrid Supply and Use Tables - Hybrid SUT, and Table of Indicators. The Stock Tables show the increments and decreases in the stock of water resources; the Physical SUT report withdrawals by abstraction of the environment for the economy, water flows within the economy and the return of the economy to the environment; the Hybrid SUT relate the monetary amounts of production, consumption and costs associated with the Water and Sewage activity; and the Table of Indicators gathers and summarizes the information contained in the Stock Tables, Physical and Hybrid SUT. The breakdown by economic activities is based on the National Classification of Economic Activities - CNAE 2.0 and the methodological recommendations of SEEA-Water.

The study is carried out once every two years. It covers the national territory, with results for Brazil and Major Regions.
