Measuring Sustainable Development

Measuring Sustainable Development

Ratings: (0)|Views: 127 |Likes:
was established in 2005 to identify good concepts and practices to assist national governments
and international organizations in the design of sustainable development indicator sets. The aim
of the Working Group was to develop a broad conceptual framework for measuring sustainable
development with the concept of capital at its centre, and to identify a small set of indicators that
might become the core set for international comparisons.
The Working Group had more than 90 members from 48 countries and international
organizations who worked together to develop a framework for measuring sustainable
development. The Working Group met five times during the period April 2006 to March 2008
and was led by a Steering Committee which provided governance and continuity between the
meetings.
This publication is the result of the Working Group’s efforts. It thoroughly explores the capital
approach to measuring sustainable development and compares the indicators that result from this
approach with those in already existing indicator sets. In this way, it draws the best from the
conceptual work of researchers and the practical work of policy makers and statisticians. It is
hoped that this work will provide an impetus for further work on statistics for sustainable
development in national statistical offices.
